Soon Congress may announce Priyanka Gandhi as star campaigner of UP elections to be held next year and Sheila Dixit as the Chief Minister candidate.
To be or not to be – to do or not to do – Congress has been contemplating the question as whether to field Priyanka Gandhi to campaign in the entire UP, and not just Amethi and Rae Baraeli, or not, during the upcoming elections for some time now. Even though she has been the darling of masses and it was a well-known fact that she is much popular amongst Congress sympathisers than anyone else in Congress – for some reason Priyanka Gandhi was kept away from active politics and also active campaigning.
But Congress supporters, sympathisers, leaders and partymen were unanimous in their opinion that if there is anyone who can shift the scales and upturn the downward hill slide that Congress in witnessing since some time now – and finally, if the Gandhi scion’s recent meetings with party seniors are anything to go by, she may as well wear the mantle of prime Congress campaigner in UP elections, next year.
The Congress is yet to announce the news, in addition, has to confirm who the chief minister candidate is in Uttar Pradesh. IT cannot leverage totally on Priyanka Gandhi’s charms to bring back the battle battered Congress party to win a few seats.
