Priyanka Gandhi takes charge of Uttar Pradesh Congress


Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who was the incharge of Congress in Uttar Pradesh East, will now lead the party in the entire state. Ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, Priyanka had made a formal entry in politics by taking over as the party general secretary Uttar Pradesh East. While she had been entrusted with the leading the party in the East, Jyotiraditya Scindia was appointed as party general secretary Uttar Pradesh West.

However, the Congress put up a dismal show in the state winning just one seat in the general elections. Congress could not even retain party chief Rahul Gandhi’s Amethi seat which he lost to Bharatiya Janata Party’s Smriti Irani. The only seat where the Congress won was Gandhi bastion Rae Bareli from where UPA chief Sonia Gandhi had contested.
