Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will be contesting the upcoming Lok Sabha elections from Wayanad in Kerala. The Opposition party released the names of 39 candidates across various states on Friday evening — including former Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel and Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor. 

The party's Central Election Committee met earlier this week to finalise the names of nearly 40 candidates for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. Reports quoting sources indicate that 60 seats from 11 states and union territories were discussed during the CEC meeting chaired by party president Mallikarjun Kharge.

Speculative reports indicate that Rahul Gandhi may also contest from Amethi while Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is fielded from the Rae Bareli seat previously held by Sonia Gandhi. Several state units of the Congress have already held meetings of their respective screening committees and forwarded the list of probable candidates in their states.
