"Whoever wants to taste defeat is free to fight from Amethi. This is up to them", party spokesperson Sandip Dikshit said.

Dikshit maintained Congress does not take anybody lightly. "He (Rahul Gandhi) is MP from Amethi and I have full confidence that he will contest the election from Amethi itself,” Dikshit said.

Gandhi is a very responsible and strong leader, Dikshit added. "I have full confidence that be it anybody, he will not win from Amethi if he contests against Rahul Gandhi."
