Kishori Lal Sharma: All you need to know about Congress' veteran candidate for Amethi constituency

PTC Web Desk: In a significant move, the Congress has nominated Kishori Lal Sharma as its candidate for the prestigious Amethi constituency, setting the stage for a showdown with BJP heavyweight Smriti Irani. The announcement, made after weeks of anticipation, underscores Kishori Lal Sharma's long-standing allegiance to the Gandhi family and his pivotal role in the political landscape of Amethi.

Hailing from Ludhiana, Punjab, Kishori Lal Sharma has been an integral part of the Congress for over four decades, bringing with him a wealth of experience and dedication to the party's cause. His journey in Amethi commenced in 1983, marking the beginning of a steadfast commitment to serving the constituents and advancing the Congress agenda in the region.



A trusted confidant of the late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, his association with the Gandhi family deepened following the tragic assassination of Rajiv Gandhi in 1991. His instrumental role in securing Sonia Gandhi's maiden victory from Amethi in 1999 further solidified his position as a formidable political strategist and organiser.

Throughout his tenure, KL Sharma has been the linchpin of the Congress machinery in Amethi and Raebareli, shouldering responsibilities with finesse and dedication. His stewardship of party affairs during crucial junctures, including Sonia Gandhi's transition of the parliamentary seat to Rahul Gandhi, underscores his unwavering commitment to the party's interests and the welfare of the people.
