It will be significant for the Congress to rejuvenate its core voters in Uttar Pradesh, where they have not been in power since last 29 years as the last time the party helmed the state was in 1984, during Rajiv Gandhi’s era.
The poster girl of Congress party holds the key to Eastern UP for the grand old party which has lost all its seats, except Amethi and Raebareli in 2014, and the Congress received a mere 9% vote share while BJP got 41%.
In the run up to the polls, Rahul Gandhi has clearly stated that Congress party would be playing on the front and now, with Jyotiraditya Scindia in Western UP and Priyanka in Eastern UP can benefit the party. But, the pertinent question remains whether Priyanka Gandhi with her all bonanza image can covert the anti-incumbency into votes or will merely increase the vote share of Congress?
