    Background: INTRODUCTION: The surviving son of Indian Prime Minister India Gandhi has taken the first step towards a political career. Rajiv Gandhi is campaigning for election to parliament in by-election to be held on June 14.

    SYNOPSIS:
    Rajiv is standing for election in the constituency of Amethi, in the northern Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. The parliamentary seat was originally won by his younger brother Sanjay early last year when Mrs. Gandhi was returned to power.

    Then Sanjay's death in a plane crash a year ago left the seat vacant. Initially Rajiv resisted the pressure to enter politics, preferring to continue with his career as an airline pilot.

    However, despite his inexperience of political life, Rajiv eventually relented and last month announced his candidacy. His campaign announced hid election on Sunday (14 June) is now approaching its climax.
