Congress poised to return in Uttar Pradesh: Raj Babbar

New Delhi: Buoyed by the success of the “UP Declaration” programme, UPCC president Raj Babbar on Saturday said that Congress was poised for a comeback in the state in the 2017 assembly polls.

“Despite the inclement weather, Congressmen made a success of the interactive programme with party vice-president Rahul Gandhi sending a strong message in the state that the party was making a comeback to power,” Babbar said.

The newly-appointed UPCC president, who took part in the first meeting of election campaign committee, said that only Congress can improve the situation in Uttar Pradesh which have been “bad” for the past 27 years.

During the meeting, election campaign committee head Sanjay Singh directed all divisional in-charges to constitute an 11-member campaign committee in all districts falling in their divisions by August 10 and Vidhan Sabha level campaign committees by August 30.
