Varun Gandhi

Varun Gandhi is the son of Union Minister Maneka Gandhi and the late Congress leader Sanjay Gandhi, and the grandson of former prime minister Indi9ra Gandhi. At present, he is a member of Parliament representing the Sultanpur Lok Sabha constituency. 
 
In Lok Sabha elections 2019, Varun Gandhi is contesting from the Pilibhit seat in Uttar Pradesh. While the newly-stitched Samajwadi Party-Bahujan Samaj Party alliance in Uttar Pradesh has thrown up significant challenges for the BJP, Pilibhit is nevertheless considered a somewhat safe bet for the party. Sultanpur, from where Varun contested the 2014 elections and won with a handsome margin, might no longer be an easy ride for the BJP. This time, Varun’s mother Maneka Gandhi is contesting from the latter seat. The BJP has shifted Varun back to Pilibhit, from where he contested in 2009 and won with an overwhelming margin.
