After Sonia Gandhi became the interim president of the Congress Party, avenues of change have opened up in the Uttar Pradesh Congress too. Uttar Pradesh is also feeling the change after the confusion over the last two months in the Congress organization at the upper level. According to Congress sources, uncertainties about the state organization of the Congress may go to rest.
Before the Lok Sabha elections, there was a demand to change the state-level organization of Congress. However, then Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra refused. She said that it is election time. There are no changes. In such a situation, there were speculations that changes in the state organization would happen immediately after the Lok Sabha elections.
Rahul Gandhi resigned from the post of president, taking moral responsibility for the defeat of the Congress in the Lok Sabha elections before they could make a decision in the matter. In such a situation when the picture of the national leadership was not clear, there was little scope for change in the state. Now the way they have made Sonia Gandhi the interim president of the Congress, it has cleared the way for the state organization to take decisions.
They disbanded the district and city units of the state after the elections. The search for presidents of district and city units started in eastern Uttar Pradesh, but in western UP this exercise has not been done. According to they also take the Congress organization. In such a situation, they now expect these postings to soon.
