Stage set for Priyanka Gandhi in UP

Sat, Jun 11, 2016, 01:10 PM
The stage is set for Priyanka Gandhi leadership in UP.

Pollster Prashant Kishor has won in securing the Congress nomination for Priyanka Gandhi in the UP Assembly elections next year.

Prashant Kishor, who had secured successes of Narendra Modi as Prime Minister and re-election of Nitish Kumar as Bihar Chief Minsiter, will try to revive the chances of moribund Congress in the crucial UP. He had suggested a Brahmanical face in the UP poll so as to cash in on the majority Brahmin vote there.

With Priyanka's entry, the Congress is as good as leading contender in the UP elections. She is a look-alike of her grandmother Indira Gandhi, who still holds sway on the older generation in the country.

Priyanka's kid brother, Rahul Gandhi, is somewhat of a reluctant politician like his father. Once in the fray, Rajiv had tuned the tide and the Congress won over 400 parliamentary seats in the election following the assassination of Indira Gandhi.

Now Priyanka has many things in her favour. There are no Congress leaders who will challenge her in UP. She has an open field in UP. Amethi and Rae Bareli are the family bastions there. She is capable of reviving the Congress in the State and beyond.
