However, it is unclear if Gandhi will contest on multiple seats or will drop the traditional Amethi constituency in Uttar Pradesh. Reports add that another seat in Madhya Pradesh is under consideration.

In the 2014 Lok Sabha Elections, Irani had lost to Rahul from Amethi, from where the Congress chief has been contesting since 2004. However, she has been saying of late that the people of Amethi have seen through Congress' game and would vote it out in the upcoming polls.

Meanwhile, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath represents Chhindwara in Parliament and he will be stepping down soon to become an MLA to continue as the CM of the Hindi heartland state.
