It is important to note that Amethi is Congress Vice-President, Rahul Gandhi’s constituency. In 2010, the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Mayawati had carved this district by taking out Tiloi and Salon regions from Rae Bareli and also adding Amethi, Musafirkhana and Gauriganj tehsils.

The district was renamed as Amethi after the Samajwadi Party came into power.
