As per party’s Mission UP, Priyanka will be visiting state regularly to connect with the grassroots-level workers. Sources claimed that two such meetings have already taken place.
Earlier this week on Thursday, Priyanka visited Rae Bareli along with her mother and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi. This was her first visit to Raebareli after poll setback. During the visit, she came down heavily at the party workers for not working in favor of the party in the general elections.
Priyanka had campaigned intensively for the party in UP, especially in Raebareli and Amethi but the party lost all the seats in UP except Raebareli.
After a massive poll setback, Priyanka Gandhi is tasked with uphill work to strengthen the party in the state keeping in mind the upcoming by-polls and State Polls that are due for 2022.

The Congress Party had only managed to won a single seat of Rae Bareli out of the 80 Lok Sabha Seats of the state. Congress vote share from UP has surged to as low as 6.3% despite of aggressive campaiging.
