Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party has ruled out forging any major alliances for the Uttar Pradesh assembly polls.
On Sunday, Ajay Kumar Lallu, state unit chief, expressed confidence that his party had the capacity to fight the elections without aligning without aligning with either of them and form the next government on it’s own. He added that the Congress would be fighting the next years assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh under Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s “dekh-rekh” and under her leadership the party would make a comeback in Uttar Pradesh after more than 3 decades.
Ajay Kumar Lallu said that the Congress had emerged as the main challenger to the oppressive UP government and has claimed that his party with just five legislators had proven to be more effective opposition than SP.
He referred to Priyanka Gandhi as winds of change and said that the party had strengthened on various levels due to Priyanka Gandhi’s leadership.
Lallu said that Priyanka Gandhi would be states in charge and that the elections would also be fought under her supervision.
He said that the people of Uttar Pradesh were looking at the Congress with hopes and there was enthusiasm in the workers as the Congress government would be formed in Uttar Pradesh under Priyanka Gandhi’s leadership.
He mentioned that Priyanka Gandhi would visit several districts with an aim to enthuse the team and prepare them for an electoral battle with the ruling BJP. He added that the Congress would fight the polls alone or would make an alliance with BSP or SP due to the issues of the people, women, farmers, poor and the oppressed.
These remarks came after the BSP and SP said that they would not go in alliance with any big party.
Lallu added that if any party was raising it’s voice against the Yogi Adityanath dispensation on the streets then it was only Congress which has turned out to be a strong opposition.
Congress has raised it’s voice on many issues for the farmers, youth and poor in regard with the unemployment, law and orders, COVID-19 pandemic, jungle raj, etc.
Priyanka Gandhi raised her voice when the tribals were killed in Sonbhadra, when the daughters of Hathras, Unnao and Shahjahanpur were done injustice, she fought against the injustice, she even hit the streets to oppose the farm laws. He said that cases were filed against thousands of Congress workers.
Ajay Kumar Lallu mentioned that the Congress received 50 lakh voted in Lok Sabha Polls and in the Assembly elections they received 51 lakh votes whereas in the panchayat polls the Congress received 1,52,00,000 votes. He added that with their determination they would make a comeback under Priyanka Gandhi’s leadership and that they had faith in the people.
Lallu added that Congress was also in place with appointment of Zila committee, block presidents, and setting up of the Nyaya panchayat and gram sabha units, and that due to the rise in people’s issue they would definitely make a comeback in Uttar Pradesh.
He added that the farmers would also support them as Congress stood against the three farm laws.
