Sonia Gandhi secured a spectacular victory

Sonia Gandhi secured a spectacular victory

In 2004, Sonia Gandhi secured a spectacular victory in Congress and even made an alliance, with the party projecting her as a woman facing powerful BJP men, most notably a brave and ace politician like Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

The more her BJP attacked her about her Italian origins and some of her made personal comments about her, the more determined Sonia Gandhi was to play the lonely woman card against the BJP. And it worked.

Moving on to 2022, Sonia Gandhi is angry again and is once again a lonely woman against the BJP strategy. Just a day after the Congressional “embarrassment” at Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury’s “Rashtrapatni” comment, which raised the BJP, the Grand Old Party changed course. This, according to the sources, is a well-considered strategy.

It started with Chowdhury himself claiming that the BJP was targeting a woman who handed over the women’s booking bill to the country. Hence, Mallikarjun Kharge moved a notice to Rajya Sabha in opposition to the “treatment of Sonia Gandhi in Lok Sabha”.

NCW summons Cong’s Adhir Chowdhury for “Rashtrapatni” comment, asks Sonia Gandhi to act

Congress knows that it is only Sonia Gandhi who ensures that the opposition agrees on the issue. In fact, both the PCN’s Supriya Sule and TMC’s Mahua Moitra leapt to the defense of Sonia Gandhi, saying they witnessed the way the congressman was treated.

Even now, compared to her son Rahul Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi is seen as a more successful politician. For this reason, even if the TMC does not like Congress, Mamata Banerjee continues to maintain a good relationship with Sonia Gandhi and also participates in opposition meetings if called by her. Most of the opposition leaders like Sharad Pawar and Banerjee prefer to do business with Sonia Gandhi. And Congress knows it.

To counter Chowdhury, the BJP has deployed its female parliamentarians on the “Rashtrapatni” issue. Smriti Irani, Meenakshi Lekhi and Nirmala Sitharaman were all out and about. The narrative used by them and the BJP was that a female president had been targeted.

Women are the flavor of the political season. In 2024, it is their votes that the BJP is keeping an eye on and has therefore announced several schemes for women’s empowerment. The Congress led by Sonia Gandhi also wants to use this narrative to woo women voters for 2024. And it believes that Sonia Gandhi is the best solution.

So far, the only seat of the Congress in UP is Rae Bareli, represented by Sonia Gandhi. Having tasted success in Amethi, once a bastion of the Gandhi family, the BJP has now clearly set their sights on Rae Bareli.

There is no uncertainty as to whether Sonia Gandhi’s health will allow her to compete in 2024. Priyanka Vadra seems reluctant and the BJP hopes to win this seat as well in 2024. But Congress has slowly begun to measure it and unlike Amethi, where their complacency hurt them, Congress is on the lookout here.

If, for the sake of argument, Priyanka Vadra competes in her mother’s place, an aggressive, angry, and back in action Sonia Gandhi will try to make sure her daughter gets the votes of sympathy, signaling the return of Sonia Gandhi’s. 2004.
