In the 2014 polls, Gandhi had defeated Irani by a margin of one lakh votes. This time, besides his stronghold of Amethi in Uttar Pradesh, the Congress chief is fighting the Lok Sabha elections from Wayanad, in Kerala.
Calling the Gandhi family "dynasts", she said, "The 'naamdar' have been crushing the dreams of the people of Amethi for the last 15 years and still consider the people of the constituency as their slaves."
Rahul Gandhi was elected to the Lok Sabha from Amethi first in 2004 and has retained the seat since.
Trying to strike an emotional chord with the gathering, she said, "I am a mother of two kids... I take care of my parent and in-laws, work at a ministry and despite losing (the last election) I have been coming here continuously to serve you all and Amethi."
Claiming that 1.75 lakh people of Amethi have being linked with the BJP government's healthcare scheme Ayushman Bharat, Irani said, "The government of 'naamdar' people never thought about this.
