Miffed with Delhi, Sheila’s in UP

April 26 2016

Delhi’s former Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit is now ready for a new political avatar. If all goes according to plan for the Congress, and if Prashan Kishore’s advice is heeded to the T, Sheila Dikshit might be made the head of the campaign committee for the party’s campaign for the 2017 Assembly elections in UP. Kishore’s formula is that the Congress concentrates on keeping together Brahmin, Thakur and Muslims. If under this strategy, Sheila becomes the Brahmin face, a Kshatriya may be made the state’s party head, and a Muslim the head of the Vidhanmandal dal. Sources say Sheila’s son Sandeep Dikshit has played a significant role in preparing her for a new political innings. He feels the Congress barely has a chance after the sun has started shining on AAP in Delhi. As a result, he is looking for new political ground for his future political role in UP and might contest the 2019 Lok Sabha elections from a Brahmin-majority constituency. In the past, his mother, too, has been an MLA from Kannauj.
