In the changing political environment, Congress is continuously making its strategy for the UP assembly elections. Under the leadership of Priyanka Gandhi, the UP Congress is making constant efforts to emerge as a strong alternative. Priyanka’s rally was held in Banaras on the first Gandhi Jayanti on October 2. Then its date was changed to 10 October and named as Pratigya Rally. But after the Lakhimpur incident, the way BJP came on the back foot, Congress has once again made preparations to raise the issue of farmers. Now the pledge rally to be held in Varanasi on Sunday has turned into ‘Kisan Nyay Rally’.

Changed strategy after CM Yogi’s statement and Lakhimpur incident
Significantly, before leaving for Lakhimpur, Priyanka Gandhi was kept in custody for 60 hours at the PAC Guest House in Sitapur. At the same time, Priyanka released a video of herself sweeping. After this, CM Yogi Adityanath gave a statement on a channel that people have left him worthy now. The Congress caught this statement and started a massive demonstration, linking it with the respect of women and Valmiki Samaj. Ashish Mishra, son of Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Mishra, was accused of trampling farmers in Lakhimpur. Due to no arrest in this case till now, BJP has given another issue in the hands of Congress. Therefore, the nature of the pledge rally has now changed to the Kisan Nyay Rally. In this rally, Priyanka will raise the issue of the arrest of the accused, the dismissal of the Minister of State for Home and the withdrawal of agricultural laws. On this pretext, a strategy has been made to make the peasant movement stand from west to east.

Unlike Bengal, Congress will fight the UP elections with full force

The performance of the Congress in the Bengal elections held a few months ago was extremely poor. The Congress was accused of creating an atmosphere in favor of Mamata Banerjee from behind the scenes. The poor performance of Congress in the UP Legislative Assembly election will directly raise questions on the capability of Priyanka Gandhi. In view of this, Congress has decided to become the alternative of the people with full force. For this, the party will give air to the farmers’ movement in Purvanchal on the pretext of the Lakhimpur incident in Priyanka Gandhi’s rally.

After seeing Maa Kushmanda, she will show strength
According to the program and route plan sent by the District Congress to the administration for Varanasi tour, the strategy of the Congress is clear. From Babatpur airport, the rally venue at Rohaniya can be reached directly via Cantt. But the route of Priyanka Gandhi will pass through most of the Muslim-dominated areas of Varanasi, through the Kashi Vishwanath temple, then through the temple of Maa Kushmanda located in Durgakund. During Navratri, Priyanka will do darshan worship at Durgakund temple of Maa Kushmanda. After that, Kisan Nyay rally will be held at Jagatpur Inter College Ground in Rohaniya. Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel and Punjab’s first Dalit CM Charanjit Singh Channi are also expected to appear on the stage.
