Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will be the face of the Congressional election campaign in Uttar Pradesh, party campaign committee leader PL Punia said on Sunday, saying the AICC general secretary is currently the most popular political figure of State.
Punia, who was appointed as head of the key 20-member Congress campaign committee for next year’s UP polls on Friday, noted that very rarely has Congress announced a chief minister face and said that not having declared one so far will not hamper the party’s chances as it already has a personality like Priyanka Gandhi to lead the charge against the BJP.
This is a direct conflict between Congress and the BJP in UP polls, as the Samajwadi party and the Bahujan Samaj party have “fallen behind” and were “no longer in the fight”, he said. said Punia.
