Congress leader and Trivandrum Lok Sabha constituency candidate Shahi Tharoor on Saturday challenged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to contest against him from Trivandrum.
“Would PM Modi likely to contest from South.If so,we welcome him in Trivandrum. Let him come and challenge me here.I will give my good fight for his money,”Tharoor said.
Earlier KPCC has invited Rahul gandhi to contest from Wayanad Parliamentary constituency.
After hearing the news,Tharoor said,”Well I’m delighted by the news that Rahul Gandhi will contest from a constituency in Kerala.This shows that first of all,we have a candidate who is confident that he is going to be the PM and he wants to show that he is electable in both North and South of the country.I think that’s a real question to ask Narendra Modi,does he have the confidence that Rahul Gandhi has?”
However,the Congress earlier this month had announced that Rahul Gandhi will contest from his bastion Amethi.BJP is fielding Smriti Irani from the constituency.
