Congress Party who is facing political exile for a long time in Uttar Pradesh may project Priyanka Gandhi Vadra as the CM candidate in 2022 assembly elections in the state.
Recently, Priyanka has been appointed as the party’s general secretary in-charge of East UP, to rejuvenate the party in the state.
In this regard, she will begin her roadshow in Lucknow on Monday.
Though Priyanka’s entry is being seen from the perspective of the Lok Sabha elections, the Congress is mulling to project as the party’s Chief Minister candidate for UP in 2022. Prior to the Priyanka’s roadshows, some UP Congress leaders have indicated about it.
Of the total 403 seats of the UP in the 2017 assembly elections, Congress got only 7 seats. In such a scenario, Congress leadership feels that Priyanka’s Charisma may be a game changer for the party in the state.
Congress is in a political exile in the northern state since 1989.
Meanwhile, there is enthusiasm among the party workers and its impact is visible in the posters in support of Priyanka’s candidature for the CM post.
Moreover, Priyanka also indicated that Congress leadership is preparing to give her some big responsibility.
