Priyanka Gandhi might be sent to Rajya Sabha by Congress

The Congress is weighing options to send General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi to the upper house of Parliament in the biennial elections to be held in April. If sources are to be believed, she is likely to be sent to the Rajya Sabha from Chhattisgarh.

More young leaders are also considered for a slot in the upper house including Jyotiraditya Scindia who lost his seat from Guna in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, while top Rahul Gandhi aides Milind Deora and Rajiv Satav could find a place from Maharashtra, and Jitin Prasada may be conducted from Bihar in a seat which RJD could concede to the Congress.

If things goes as planned, many veterans may not get a chance to return to the Rajya Sabha. With the terms of Moti Lal Vora, Ambika Soni and Ghulam Nabi Azad ending this year, Azad may get a seat from Rajasthan where the Congress has a majority.
