Who will be Congress’ face in UP?

March 08 2016

While on one hand the top brass at BJP can’t get over self-delusion, on the other hand, the Congress, which is struggling to win back its place, is giving the 2017 UP Assembly elections all it’s got under the leadership of ace strategist Prashant Kishore. Contrary to the saffron party’s ideology, Kishore has devised a strategy to play a bigger innings. His first attempt is to project Priyanka Gandhi Vadra as the face of the Congress party in UP, but at present, it is said Priyanka is not ready for it just yet. In such a scenario, Kishore has devised another foolproof plan; in case Priyanka does not come on board, Delhi’s former Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit can be portrayed as the party’s face in the state. That is because Sheila is the daughter-in-law of Umashankar Dikshit, an old family from UP. Also, she is a woman, and has proved her prowess and abilities as the chief minister of Delhi in the past. Non-backward castes, especially the Brahmins, might be roped in to support her in UP. And if this strategy works, the Congress might win back lost ground in the state.
