LS Polls 2024: Fierce Electoral Battle in Amethi | Smriti Irani Vs KL Sharma | What Locals Think

The Amethi Lok Sabha constituency in Uttar Pradesh will be one of the most watched seats in the fifth phase of voting in the ongoing general elections on May 20.

The seat was in the headlines due to the uncertainty over who the Congress will field from the constituency against sitting MP and Union minister Smriti Irani.

There were speculations that the grand old party may field either Rahul Gandhi or Priyanka Gandhi Vadra from the constituency against Smriti Irani.

Putting all the speculations to rest, the Congress announced Gandhi family loyalist Kishori Lal Sharma as its candidate from the constituency... on the last day of nomination for phase 5.

KL Sharma will be faced with stiff opposition from Smriti Irani in Amethi.

While Sharma has focused on raking up his and the Gandhi family's connection with the constituency, Irani is questioning the Congress on what it has done for the constituency so far.

Oneindia Team talks to locals in Amethi and know their opinions on this fierce battle.
