As Raebareli went to the polls on Monday, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi made a significant accusation against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), claiming that “voters are being intimidated” in the Uttar Pradesh district. Raebareli, a key constituency, is in the spotlight as it selects its representative in the Lok Sabha elections.

Rahul Gandhi, who is contesting from Raebareli, arrived in the constituency via road after landing at the Lucknow airport from Delhi. During his visit, the former Congress president inspected several polling booths and interacted with voters, underscoring the importance of their participation in the electoral process.

Earlier in the day, Gandhi took to X to express his optimism about the elections and the broader political climate in India. He stated, “The people of India are fighting this election together and a storm of change is sweeping across the country. I am appealing to the entire country, including Amethi and Raebareli – come out in large numbers and vote for the prosperity of your families, for your rights, for the progress of India.”

Gandhi emphasized the electorate’s role in safeguarding democracy, adding, “It has become clear in the first four phases that the people have stood up to protect the Constitution and democracy and are defeating the BJP.”

In addition to Raebareli, Rahul Gandhi is also contesting from Wayanad in Kerala, where he is the sitting MP. His dual candidacy reflects the strategic importance of both constituencies for the Congress party.

On May 20, polling was underway for 13 Lok Sabha seats in the fifth round of the elections in Uttar Pradesh. The constituencies included Mohanlalganj, Lucknow, Raebareli, Amethi, Jalaun, Jhansi, Hamirpur, Banda, Fatehpur, Kaushambi, Barabanki, Faizabad, Kaiserganj, and Gonda. These elections are being conducted across seven phases, starting from April 19 and concluding on June 1, with the counting of votes scheduled for June 4.

According to data from the Election Commission, the fifth phase of the Lok Sabha elections saw a cumulative voter turnout of 56.68 percent by 5 pm, reflecting robust participation from the electorate.

As the election progresses, all eyes remain on Raebareli and other key constituencies, where high-profile candidates and intense political rivalries are shaping the future of Indian democracy.
