Lok Sabha to host four Gandhis for the first time
New Delhi, May 17 (PTI) In an unparalleled feat for a political family, four members of the illustrious Nehru-Gandhi lineage would simultaneously occupy seats in India's 15th Lok Sabha, albeit in rival camps. With BJP's firebrand leader Varun Gandhi making it to the Lok Sabha for the first time, Parliament will be host to two mother-son duos of India's first political family representing two main political parties.

While Congress President Sonia Gandhi[Image: thumb_high1005747.jpg] and her son Rahul[Image: preview?] will be part of the ruling coalition, BJP leader Maneka Gandhi[Image: is?yYcVHMu4eyQYkpqd2CS5Tgfk6zMy8SH2uoRnukfriXU] and her son Varun[Image: 13233565-varun-file-photo.jpg?x=190&y=12...e.Wai6Rw--], the saffron party's latest poster boy will be seated on the opposition benches. This will be the first time four members of the family, though from its two estranged factions, will simultaneously be in the Lok Sabha that has for most part of its history seen at least one member of the Nehru-Gandhi clan.

The family debuted in Parliament's lower house with the formidable Jawaharlal Nehru, India's first Prime Minister, who occupied the seat from 1952 till the time of his death in 1964. Nehru's son-in-law Feroz Gandhi gave him company for most of his years in the Lok Sabha.

Gandhi, husband of Nehru's daughter Indira was an MP from Pratapgarh constituency in Uttar Pradesh from 1952 to 1960. PTI.
