Uttar Pradesh's Amethi is one of the most-watched seats of all the 543 Lok Sabha constituencies. 

Saturday exit polls had forecasted a tough fight between Irani and KL Sharma. 

In the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, Irani defeated Congress candidate Rahul Gandhi from Amethi- which had been a Congress bastion for several years.

However, in the 2024 LS polls, Gandhi contested from Kerala's Waynad and Uttar Paradesh's Raebareli, which has been being represented by former Congress president Sonia Gandhi since 2004.

In Uttar Pradesh- the state with the highest number of constituencies- the Samajwadi Party (SP) is ahead on 35 seats while the BJP is leading on 34 seats, a significant decline from the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

Congress is currently leading on seven seats, as per the latest trends by the Election Commission.
