KANPUR: The Congress is banking on the magic of its leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi to help the party regain power in Uttar Pradesh after a gap of over two decades.

“The countdown for the fall of BSP government has begun… Rahul Gandhi’s frequent visits to the state and Sonia Gandhi’s support to the party in the state have boosted the morale of our workers,” Sriprakash Jaiswal, chairman of the UP election campaign committee, said.

“During the next year assembly elections Rahulji and Soniaji will travel the whole state and their magic will work on public. We will secure enough seats this time and form government in Uttar Pradesh after more than 20 years,” the Union coal minister said.

Ruling out any alliance with the BSP or the Samajwadi Party, he said Congress can contemplate joining hands with smaller parties after the assembly polls.

He said people are fed up of both BSP and SP, while BJP has lost its support base and that makes the Congress first choice for the public in the 2012 assembly polls.

Jaiswal said he will visits every Assembly constituency in the state and will help in raising morale of the party workers there.(IANS)
