According to the statement of the Congress leader and also the chief of party’s campaign committee for assembly polls of Uttar Pradesh, PL Punia, the face of Congress’ election campaign has been decided for the state. He has announced that Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will be the one leading the poll campaign for Congress.
Punia added that Vadra is at present the most popular political figure in Uttar Pradesh. He has also been quoted as saying that “We’re fortunate that Priyanka Gandhi is available for campaigning all the time.”
Responding to popular doubts regarding Congress’ prospects of winning because of not declaring a Chief Ministerial candidate yet, Punia has shown confidence in Vadra’s popularity and commented that with the All India Congress Committee’s (AICC) general secretary heading the charge, party’s chances against the BJP will not get affected.
According to ANI, a senior BJP leader, while ascertaining that the BJP has maintained the undefeatable popularity of PM Modi, has confessed to some leaders being concerned about the significant crowd that has been turning up in Priyanka Gandhi’s recent rallies.
Notably, Priyanka has constantly been active in the political scenario of Uttar Pradesh and has been making highlights with news such as holding protests and visiting families of Lakhmipur violence victims.
