UP’s only popular leader Priyanka

Punia, who has been given charge of the election campaign committee in Uttar Pradesh, said the Congress has very rarely announced a chief ministerial face.

Asserting AICC general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is the most popular political figure in Uttar Pradesh presently, Congress leader P.L. Punia on Sunday said she will be the face of the grand old party’s election campaign in the state.

Punia, who has been given charge of the election campaign committee in Uttar Pradesh, said the Congress has very rarely announced a chief ministerial face.

The Congress leader added that not having declared one till now will not hamper the party’s chances as it already has a personality like Priyanka Gandhi to lead the charge against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Expressing confidence, Punia said it is a direct contest between the Congress and the BJP in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls, adding both the Samajwadi Party and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) have “fallen behind” and were “not in the fight anymore”.

Showering praises on Priyanka Gandhi, the Congress leader said she has fought for truth on all issues.

He added when the Lakhimpur Kheri incident happened, she immediately left to meet the family of the victims, and was detained in Sitapur, but remained determined in her quest for justice.

Punia further said she was “successful” in her struggle and went to Lakhimpur Kheri and Bahraich to meet the victims’ families.

Underscoring that people of Uttar Pradesh are impressed by Priyanka Gandhi, Punia said no politician is more popular than her currently in the entire state.
