According to the Congress party, the upcoming elections for the post of Deputy speaker in the assembly of Uttar Pradesh state are being scheduled to be conducted just to divert the attention of everyone from the real and important problematic issues going on in the state. The party has announced that for that reason, it will be completely boycotting the election.
Congress workers also sat in front of the state assembly carrying placards demanding justice for farmers who died in the Lakhimpur Kheri violence on October 3.
The party also alleged that both the BJP and SP were involved in a friendly fight and were keen on the election and not on discussing the various raging issues facing the state.
The state politics is going through an ugly phase and the results of the upcoming state election in 2022 will be interesting to watch. Priyanka Gandhi has recently been declared as the head of Congress’ campaign in Uttar Pradesh, though the name of a CM candidate has not yet been uncovered by the party.
