Congress intensifies its poll campaign with Sonia Gandhi pitching in Delhi

By IndianMandarins- 17 Jan 2020


The Congress that was otherwise in a dorment state in Delhi has suddenly sprung into action by planning to organise roadshow led by Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi with Manmohan Singh and Punjab CM also pitching in to campaign in Delhi Assembly polls. Interestingly Sonia Gandhi too will address couple of rallies in the city.

To understand it better actually the Congress that fared secound on five out of seven Lok Sabha seats in 2019 elections does not want to give a message that it has given walkover to either AAP or to the BJP. The way it is aggressively campaigning against the CAA, it is very important to contest Delhi elections aggressively.

The party also wants to capitalise on the confused stand of AAP on CAA while the BJP and the Congress are out in open against each other on the issue. The party will be more aggressive in the days to come and one such example being that former minister in the Delhi government Rajkumar Chauhan who had switched sides with the BJP has come back to Congress once again. The party has also asked all its Lok Sabha candidates to contest Assembly election.

Manmohan Singh and Captain Amrinder Singh will campaign in Sikh dominated constituencies of Delhi and Bhupinder Singh Hooda will be asked to focus in the outer Delhi and Jat dominated areas. Kamal Nath, Raj Babbar, Shatrughan Sinha will also campaign in Delhi. The Congress has already made Kirti Azad as the chairman campaign committee of Delhi.

The Congress feels that if any such message goes to people that Congress is not serious in Delhi, the revival dream of the party in Delhi will just remain a dream. Most of its leaders who had contested the Lok Sabha election will also contest Assembly and many other senior leaders of the party including former ministers in the Delhi government. Names of daughter Sheila Dikshit from New Delhi seat and son on Jai Prakash Agarwal to contest Delhi Assembly elections are also doing round.
