Priyanka Gandhi Vadra get’s formal entry in Congress, she has been appointed as general secretary of party for Uttar Pradesh east region.
The question in everyone’s mind is what affect she is going to create in the biggest and most influential political state in India.
Political Situation in Uttar Pradesh
Uttar Pradesh has 80 seats in Lok Sabha highest in the country, last lok sabha election people of UP gave 71 seats to the ruling BJP government. Which helped the BJP to form government in India with ease. Samajwadi party got 5 seats, congress got 2 seats, BSP got 0 and Apna Dal (alliance partner of BJP) got 2 seats in Uttar Pradesh.
Uttar Pradesh is the most complex state in the terms of Political ideology, it keeps testing every party time to time. All 4 major parties BJP, SP, BSP, Congress have good vote base in Uttar Pradesh the state is important for each party for political reason.
In last lok sabha election campaign of BJP sweeped away 71 seats from the state leaving all other parties far far behind. This time it’s going to be impossible for BJP to regain all 71 seats. Opposition parties SP & BSP have announced that they have made an alliance for upcoming Lok Sabha Elections. Leaving congress alone which compelled the party to go solo in Lok Sabha elections as of now.
Congress decided to take a big step in Uttar Pradesh by making Priyanka Gandhi Vadra as general secretary of state for Eastern UP. She has been helping out her Brother and mother earlier on their seats Amethi and Raebareli respectively. She is hailed as Second Indira Gandhi by Congress workers across the country. Party are shouting slogans like- “Priyanka nahi andhi hai dusri indira gandhi hai”.
Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is known to everyone as daughter of Rajeev Gandhi in country as well as in Amethi and Raebareli. She haven’t campaigned outside these two places so nobody can access her capabilities in whole state of uttar pradesh.
Role of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra
Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is definitely going to boost moral of party workers in uttar pradesh. The question is whether she is going to increase the tally of congress from 2 seats in UP. Let’s access it right now
Congress vote percent in Uttar Pradesh is 7.50% according to last lok sabha elections. Congress is hoping to revive party carder’s moral in upcoming Lok Sabha Elections. The road is not going to be easy for them as their vote bank relies on Brahmins and Muslims mostly.
Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is going to be a important factor in this as eastern UP has high vote percentage of Brahmins and they are a dominant force and in fierce competition with Thakurs of the region.
After Yogi Adityanath has been appointed as Chief Minister of the state their is a political tusle going on between thakurs and brahmins in eastern uttar pradesh.
She might convince Brahmins to vote for her party in upcoming Lok Sabha Elections as they have been a ardent supporters of congress earlier but how much of vote swing is going to take place can’t be said right now.
Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is definitely going to increase vote % for congress in Eastern UP but will she be able to convert it into any seats is highly doubtful as the alliance of SP & BSP is going to fight With full force in eastern up.
In this contest BJP won’t be sitting in idle they would have made some strategy for Easter UP, the fight is going to be triangular. The party with better voter management and party workers is going to win high number of seats in Uttar Pradesh.
As per sources, there is a possibility that Sonia Gandhi will give up her seat for daughter Priyanka.
