Sonia Gandhi campaigns for final phase of UP polls

Congress party chief Sonia Gandhi has slammed previous non-Congress governments in Uttar Pradesh for the poor state of development.

Maharajganj (UP), May 6 : Congress party chief Sonia Gandhi has slammed previous non-Congress governments in Uttar Pradesh for the poor state of development.

Addressing a party rally at Maharajganj during her campaign for the seventh and final phase of polls in Uttar Pradesh, scheduled for May 8, Sonia said previous governments failed despite being given opportunities to rule.

"In last 17-18 years, all anti-Congress parties have got the chance to form the government. You have tested everyone, you have seen their work, they don't have any policies, neither they want the development of the state, they only want to be in power," said Sonia.

Sonia, who heads the United Progressive Alliance (UPA), attacked the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which is ruling Gujarat, for its poor standard of law and order.

"They (BJP) criticise the Congress party for the law and order situation, but during their regime, the law and order situation was no better.

The Gujarat Government is the best example of their poor law and order management. Because of it, they lost the last general elections (2004) and the Congress received full support of the people of India, although the people of Uttar Pradesh did not contribute to it much," she added.

The Congress party has struggled to make a mark in Uttar Pradesh, and is trailing a distant fourth in the polls. But after a disappointing spell as a coalition partner in the state, its leaders and workers are leaving no stone unturned in order to garner as much vote and support as possible.

The record seven-phase assembly polls will come to an end on Tuesday with the final phase of the polling for 59 assembly segments.

Major leaders whose fate will be decided in the final phase are Ambika Chaudhary, Harishankar Tiwari, Mukhtar Ansari and Akhilesh Pratap Singh.

Counting of votes is due on May 11 and results are expected on the same day.
