According to an announcement made by senior Congress leader and the campaign head for the party in Uttar Pradesh, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Congress party will be providing as many as 40% of its tickets to women. She made the announced today itself in capital Lucknow.

Tickets to women will be provided on merit, with further aims to slowly move towards 50% seats for women in the state, she said, adding that the decision has been taken considering that women will fully participate in the Uttar Pradesh elections.

“If you want change, don’t wait. Nobody is going to protect you. People only talk, but when it comes to protection, those are protected who trample you. Today the meaning of power is that you can brazenly run over people- this is what power has come down to mean. This is wrong,” she said in a recent press conference held at the Congress headquarters in Lucknow.

Priyanka Gandhi is currently on a visit to Lucknow in order to review the preparedness of the party for the much awaited for upcoming elections in Uttar Pradesh in 2022.
