In a stunning turnaround after state poll reverses, saffron party sweeps MP, Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh
Going alone in UP for Congress' long-term interest, will do a good job this time: Jyotiraditya Scindia
The state has 29 Lok Sabha seats and in the last general elections, it won a total of 27 seats.
Jyotiraditya Scindia, who is also in-charge of the Congress in western Uttar Pradesh, topped the list of 967 candidates.
Her warning came after Lokendra Singh Rajput, the SP-BSP candidate in Guna in Madhya Pradesh, quit the BSP on Monday and came out in support of Congress candidate Jyotiraditya Scindia.
Scindia said he is very confident the party's strategy, the candidates fielded and the campaign in the Uttar Pradesh will result in it winning the trust of the people.
With this speculation about the possibility of Scindia contesting from any other seat (Gwalior or Indore) have been put to rest.
If at all there is a Scindia Vs Vijayvargiya battle on May 19 in Indore, then Scindia’s wife Priyadarshini Raje could be fielded as the Congress candidate from Guna seat.
Madhya Pradesh might see Gwalior royal family’s first couple contesting from separate seats for the very first time in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
The AICC general secretary incharge UP west's remarks assume significance as they come amid reports that there may be a rethink on the grand alliance in Uttar Pradesh to include the Congress.
Rahul and Priyanka paid tributes to the slain soldier. They were also seen consoling the members of the bereaved family.
Lok Sabha elections: Rahul Gandhi puts 41 seats in Uttar Pradesh under Priyanka Gandhi, 39 under Jyotiraditya Scindia
Priyanka Gandhi and Scindia were appointed AICC general secretary in-charge UP east and UP west respectively in January and took charge last week.
Priyanka held a series of marathon meetings with the senior leaders of state Congress committee and also those who had come from various districts of eastern UP.
In his concluding speech delivered to the party workers and dozens of senior leaders at UPCC headquarters, the Congress chief renewed the call to oust the BJP government in the state.
Priyanka’s passage from the political foyer to the Grand Hall has many implications.
Rahul Gandhi reiterated he has full respect for leaders like Bahujan Samaj Party president Mayawati and Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav and his father Mulayam Singh Yadav.
