All five constituencies of U’khand on focus of Cong leadership
All Lok Sabha constituencies of Uttarakhand are included in the list of 150 seats in the country which the Congress leadership has prepared for special attention. The list includes those seats where the Congress party is in direct contest with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). It is learnt that the Congress President, Rahul Gandhi and his sister Priyanka Gandhi would hold road shows and rallies in these constituencies to boost the prospects of congress candidates. It is believed that the United Progressive Alliance ( UPA) chairperson, Sonia Gandhi could also campaign in these areas.
The strategists of Congress believe that with special focus on these constituencies, the twin purpose of restricting the tally of BJP and boosting the electoral fortunes of Congress can be achieved. In Uttarakhand which has the tradition of contest which is mainly between the BJP and Congress, all five Lok Sabha seats are on the focus of the Congress leaders. It is worth mentioning here that the Congress party had swept all five seats in Uttarakhand in the Lok Sabha elections of 2009. Things however were reversed in the year 2014 when riding high on a strong Modi wave the BJP candidates won from all the seats here.
The co- in charge of Uttarakhand Congress, Rajesh Dharmani told The Pioneer that all the five seats of the state are on the special focus of Congress leadership. He said that apart from rallies of Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi, the state unit of Congress has requested the party to send UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi to Uttarakhand.
