Politically Fit with Shehzad Poonawalla: Where is Rahul's 56" chest?

In this episode of Politically Fit, Congress rebel Shehzad Poonawalla, while explaining the right exercises for developing muscles of the chest, questions what the need of Congress president Rahul Gandhi is to look for a seat to contest other than stronghold Amethi.
Listing the exercises he does for the chest, Poonawalla explains how, whereas Amethi in Uttar Pradesh has been a bastion of the Congress, represented by the Dynasty since Rajiv Gandhi's time, the margin of victory of Rahul Gandhi from this seat reduced successively in 2004, 2009 and 2014. In the previous Lok Sabha election for this seat, BJP's Smriti Irani had reduced Gandhi's margin to a mere 1 lakh odd votes.
In this scenario, when the Congress decides to field their president from an additional seat in southern India, which may be Wayanad in Kerala, it sends a wrong message to the workers and supporters of the party as much as the rest of the electorate.
