Lately the Congress party has not just lost relevance but has also lost popularity of Nehru-Gandhi among masses. Until now the Nehu-Gandhi family survived because of the name tag by building an illusion of secularism in the country.
But ever since the enumerable scams emerged during the UPA rule, the people realized their real intent of destroying India. The scams under UPA government was one of the worst period in the history of India and degraded the name of our country on the global platform.
The anger of people against the Congress government was shown during the 2014 general elections, when the Congress was reduced to just 44 seats which was the lowest in the 70 years. After PM Modi became the Prime Minister of India, the Congress has literally lost ground through out the country and inching towards Congress Mukt Bharat.
But the worst is yet to come, a recent survey as shown that Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi are most likely to lose the General elections in both Amethi and Rae Bareli. The main reason is because of their extreme neglect of the districts since 2 decades. There has been no development in the cities, no jobs, no industries and the worst part is even after 70 years of independence, the people of Amethi and Rae Bareli do not have electricity and clean drinking water facilities.
It is only after the Modi government took over, the electricity lines are being installed in the most remote villages and people are able to see some change. The recent Assembly elections in UP was a clear evidence that how Congress was pushed to the last place and they lost all 5 seats in Amethi, the home constituency of Rahul Gandhi. It was no difference in Rae Bareli either, where Congress lost 3 seats out of 5 to BJP.
During the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, Rahul Gandhi really had to struggle to attract voters, which he never did all these years. Generally Rahul Gandhi would only participate in road shows and people voted for him, but after Smriti Irani contested against him in 2014, the elections were not the same for Rahul Gandhi. He literally had to visit every houses convincing them to vote for Congress. But even after hard effort, Rahul Gandhi could not win with huge margin and it lead to a tough contest until the last round of counting. He lost 25% vote share in the elections.
As promised, Smriti inspite of losing the elections is visiting Amethi every year and is working on implementing many government schemes . On the other hand, Rahul Gandhi has not visited his constituency more than twice in 3 years, which has upset the people of Amethi. The people in the rural areas are complaining that Rahul Gandhi never visits the place once the elections are over.
The locals in Rae Bareli are openly saying that now Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi have no value in the place and it is most likely that they will lose the elections in 2019.
When asked if the Mahaghatbandhan will help the Congress in 2019, people clearly say it will not make any difference as they expect a stable government not a ghatbandhan where people keep shifting blame on each other.
