The Congress had to face several rebellions in the traditional Nehru-Gandhi strongholds of Amethi and Rae Bareli. Two Congress MLAs, Aditi Singh from Rae Bareli city and Rakesh Singh from Harchandpur, revolted against the party and their loyalty is now with the BJP. Congress lost Amethi’s home ground to Union Minister Smriti Irani in 2019 and the party has no MLAs from both the Lok Sabha seats after Aditi Singh’s rebellion.

Rae Bareli and Amethi constituencies were looked after by close aide K.L. Sharma and he were involved in day to day affairs. Though Rahul Gandhi sent Chandrakant to look after Amethi in the last Lok Sabha election, he could not manage the constituency and Rahul Gandhi lost the election. However, Sharma was successful in ensuring the party’s victory in Rae Bareli.
Meanwhile Rahul Gandhi has visited the constituency only twice and Sonia Gandhi’s health is not well so Priyanka Gandhi is looking after the home ground but no significant gains have been seen and the assembly election is a challenge for the Gandhi family. Will be.
Now to revive the party, the Congress in Uttar Pradesh has decided to take out a ‘Pratigya Yatra’ with the tagline ‘Hum Vachan Nibhagayenge’ ahead of the assembly elections to be held early next year.
