Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi. Vydra appeared to drop a bombshell today that she could be her party's chief ministerial candidate for next month's Uttar Pradesh assembly. Election. While releasing a manifesto outlining job creation plans for the youth of Uttar Pradesh, Priyanka Gandhi, Badda was asked about the speculation over the Congress's chief ministerial candidate for this election. Given that the BJP will line up behind Yogi Adit Yana and the Samajwadi Party is being led by Akhilesh Yadav. This was her response. Opteron g yob MacArthur riqueza You hungry? Begin at nearby.

Tha tha hoe gotta Let's take this right across to our reporters joining us now Sunil Prabhu and Alok Pandey. Senator, what are we to make of those remarks? She says, very categorically. Do you see anyone else's face? And she certainly has been, you know, in that sense, really representing the Congress's entire campaign in, In, in in the state. Is this a hint that, you know, this is something that's at least being considered? It's not a hint ANC it. It's a quite clear that she is the face she is, as he very categorically makes that point, that she's going to be the face of the entire campaign for Uttar Pradesh and see is leading from the front. But having said that, whether she'll contested election, that seems highly unlikely because that that's something that they don't want. Priyanka Gandhi because the two opinions about it one is that she should contest the election window by being the face. But then what happens is that you were confined to constituency and you can't focus everywhere ALS and in the eventuality of the Congress, which is unlike, you know, not doing exceptionally well because, you know, they were barking again starts. They don't really have to march more McShea there and that their base has been affected and they're trying to resurrect themselves in that state. With that backdrop, would it be correct? Force Priyanka Gandhi to become the sacrifice a lamp in the sense of, you know, being the face and then saying, not know performance and unable to. I really deliver on the ground and that will be a setback for 2024. So these are considerations in their mind. But I think the focus right now is that she is the chief minister's faces. She has indicated she is. We're going there with the vision she's leading from the front. But whether she will contest are the elections seems highly unlikely at the present juncture, even though she says no decision has been taken. As of given how that reply was phrased, Do you think there's going to be some kind of galvanising of the Congress cadre on the ground? You know, as there's more speculation over this was was Israeli a standard response at a press conference? Well, an kita, I think, beyond the hype of whether she will be the chief minister's face or not, as Sunil Service, rightly pointing out, the Congress Party is on a week footing, so to say, in Uttar Pradesh I was more interested in one more and said that she gave when she was asked about the possibility of the Congress being part of any post postelection coalition and that she said that. Yes, sir, If the situation so arises, we may be open to it. And if there is a possibility that our agenda of putting women and youth in front is adhere to, then yes, we can be part of any such coalition. So I think that was a more interesting answer because he, realistically the congress last time got about seven seats in a 403 seat vegan Saba in Uttar Pradesh. This time, yes, Priyanka Gandhi has been leading from the front. Yes, she has been the face of the campaign, but the main fight in Uttar Pradesh. And I must reiterate this is between appears to be, at least between the BJP, led by Yogi, Aditya Nath and the Prime Minister, and Akhilesh Yadav, whose position himself as the main challenger and his party, the Samajwadi Party, as the main challenger to Mr Aditya. Not in fact, early on a few months ago, there was some talk that maybe like the previous election, the congress would also look to tie up with the Samajwadi Party. But Akhilesh himself ruled that out, saying that he did not want to go ahead and tie up with any bigger party, any national party for the elections. So that Congress has position remains that if they do manage to do very well, then of course they will. They will hold that bargaining chip with any other like minded party that they would like to go with but at the movement and synced resting, the Bianca Gandhi is also talking about at least be willing to answer questions on a free post poll AM sorry coalition and the other stuff about the chief minister and about contesting the election, of course, remains and that we've already analysed.
