Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday filed his nomination papers from Amethi. He is also contesting the 2019 Lok Sabha polls from Wayanad in Kerala. 

Before filing the nomination, Gandhi embarked on a roadshow in Amethi. Amethi goes to polls in the fifth phase on May 6.

The three-term MP will take on Union minister and BJP candidate Smriti Irani in the Lok Sabha election in a virtually direct contest as the SP-BSP-RLD alliance has decided not to put up any candidate here.
