Sonia Gandhi has won her Rae Barelli seat once again. Victory margin: a whopping 4, 17, 888 votes. All her rivals lost their deposits. One of them is Raj Kumar Chaudhary the nephew of a minister in the Samajwadi party government in the state. Neither BJP, which fielded a reluctant Vinay Katiyar who had shot into fame as a leader of Hindutva forces a decade back, nor Apna Dal candidate Prabha Singh Lodhi, the nominee of BJP rebel Uma Bharti who has floated Apna Dal could with stand the Sonia tornado.
