    In the recently concluded Lok Sabha polls, Rahul Gandhi won both UP's Raebareli and Kerala's Wayanad seat. However, he announced to retain the Raebareli Lok Sabha seat and vacate the Wayanad Lok Sabha seat.

    Born on June 19, 1970, Gandhi is a five-term Member of Parliament in the Lok Sabha.

    In 2004, Rahul Gandhi announced his entry into Indian politics. He contested his first election from Amethi, in Uttar Pradesh - the same seat his late father represented - where he won by an overwhelming margin of almost three lakh votes. On September 24, 2007, Rahul Gandhi was appointed General Secretary of the All India Congress Committee (AICC).

    In September 2022, he embarked on the Bharat Jodo Yatra (BJY). This monumental padayatra of 4080 kilometres was undertaken on September 7, 2022, from Kanyakumari in the South and culminated on January 30, 2023, in Kashmir in the North.

    In January 2024, Rahul Gandhi embarked upon the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra (BJNY) - a journey from Manipur in the northeast of India to Mumbai on the West coast that culminated on March 16, 2024. This 6,700 km long yatra focused on bringing comprehensive social, economic, and political justice to the people of India.
