Will benefit from rows in SP, BSP and win local polls: Congress


UP Congress leaders are eying three important mayoral elections — in Lucknow, because it is the state capital, Varanasi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s parliamentary constituency, and Gorakhpur, which is chief miniser Yogi Adityanath’s bastion.

“We are confident of staging a surprise in the urban local body polls,” UP Congress spokesperson Ashok Singh told PTI.

“If the party manages to wrest Lucknow, Varanasi and Gorakhpur from the BJP in the mayoral elections, it will exponentially boost the morale of Congress workers, and at the same time strengthen the party in the urban areas of the state,” he said.

The party has already started looking for suitable candidates, especially young workers, who could be the future face of the party, he said.
