Former Uttar Pradesh Congress chief Rita Bahuguna Joshi, who recently joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), 17 more leaders of Congress have resigned from the primary membership in her support.
As per reports, neither Bahuguna nor the 17 leaders, who have quit Congress, have impact in their areas, and therefore their exit will not harm Congress. The members, who left the Congress, were party secretaries, vice-presidents, women’s wing and ward level leaders.
As per sources, Priyanka Gandhi will be playing an important role in reviving the Congress in Uttar Pradesh. She has recently attended several meetings, which were held for the upcoming elections in Uttar Pradesh.
