Priyanka Gandhi To Lead Congress Election Campaign In UP, Says Salman Khurshid

New Delhi: Congress will go solo in the upcoming Uttar Pradesh (UP) Assembly election under the leadership of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, said former Union minister Salman Khurshid on Sunday.

Salman Khurshid said the Congress has not decided on its chief ministerial candidate yet but it would field candidates for all 403 assembly seats in UP, India Today reported.

“The party will not form an alliance with any party. We will contest the elections with firm belief. Party workers will go to each constituency to know the problems being faced by the local people,” PTI quoted Salman Khurshid as saying.

Salman Khurshid, who was in Agra to meet people to be able to prepare the party’s manifesto, stressed that it would include voices of the common people. “The party members have been visiting assemblies and trying to contact people and know problems being faced by the locals,” he said.

As for the Congress manifesto, he said it would not be prepared on the recommendation of the experts and include general issues of local people. It would make them happy and they can say that this manifesto is their own.
