Priyanka Gandhi: Is Priyanka Gandhi Vadra the CM face for Congress in 2022 UP polls? | Lucknow News


LUCKNOW: Will the

high-profile entry of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra

as all-India general secretary of the Congress and in charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh bring an end of the grand old party’s political “vanvaas” in the state where it has been out of power for nearly 30 years since 1989?

Quite possible, say party sources, given how Rahul has trusted her with restoring the party’s golden days by bringing Congress to power in UP.

With the party sliding to a ridiculous seven seats out of 403 in the 2017 assembly elections, the Congress apparatus and foot soldiers have virtually remained in a state of inertia.

However, the presence of Priyanka Gandhi is likely to excite and charge up the moribund rank and file of the party. The mood is already upbeat as can be witnessed on Lucknow streets plastered with banners, hoardings and cutouts and an array of top leaders, rarely visible in Lucknow, ready to welcome her.

Even before her arrival in the state capital on Monday, Priyanka’s stinging attack on the Yogi government on the hooch tragedy and her three-day engagement with state and district leaders directly also indicate a roadmap she has drawn up for the revival of the Congress.

Her strong criticism of the BJP government makes it clear that she would lead the party’s fight from the front and stay in Lucknow and challenge her rivals.

In the next three days, Priyanka Gandhi would be meeting district-level leaders for nearly 12 hours a day from 11 am to 11 pm, according to the official release.

Her interaction and collection of feedback from the district and constituency level leaders is a big step as, so far, the top leadership of the party or Gandhi family members rarely met them. Even if they met, it was through intermediaries like UPCC president or state leaders.

Priyanka will be returning to Delhi on February 13 evening and back again in Lucknow for more interactions. She would soon start hitting the road to visit hinterlands and her itinerary may include Faizabad, Gorakhpur, Varanasi and Allahabad.

As a short term goal, Rahul may have handed her the responsibility of 42 constituencies of the state, mostly in eastern UP, for the forthcoming general elections, but she will be playing a bigger role for the 2022 assembly elections.

The Congress’s next target would be to woo back the Brahmin-led upper castes from rival camps, mainly the BJP. Those in Team Priyanka have been asked to contact the forgotten and marginalised Brahmin families, who had been once associated with the Congress and also approach the Brahmin leaders in other parties to meet Priyanka Gandhi.
