Shazia Ilmi denies contesting LS poll against Sonia Gandhi

AAP leader Shazia Ilmi on Tuesday sought to quell speculation that she would be pitted against Congress president Sonia Gandhi in the Lok Sabha polls, saying she ‘never agreed’ to contest from Rae Bareli. ‘I am not contesting from Rae Bareli. I never agreed to nor do I now ... I’ve been denying this for the last two months,’ Ilmi wrote on social networking site twitter.

There was buzz in the party that Ilmi will be fielded against Gandhi from Rae Bareli after another AAP leader Kumar Vishwas was fielded against Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi from Amethi. Sources said the party was keen on Ilmi taking on Gandhi, but then Ilmi was not interested to take on the Congress president.
