On the basis of the formula decided in the Raipur General Assembly, an attempt was made to form the Pradesh Congress Committee in UP.
Women and youth were given participation in the new committee along with SC, ST, OBC.
It is yet to be approved by the state in-charge and party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi.

Delhi. It has been almost 6 months since the state president and provincial presidents were nominated in the Uttar Pradesh Congress. Till now there is confusion regarding the formation of state committee in UP Congress. In such a situation, according to the announcement made in the Congress Raipur plenary session, an attempt was made to constitute the State Congress Committee. In this, along with SC, ST, OBC, the participation of women and youth below 50 years (50 Percent Party Positions Reserve) has been fixed. Now the seal of Priyanka Gandhi (Priyanka Gandhi Vadra), the in-charge of the state and the general secretary of the party, is yet to be stamped on this newly formed committee. For this, State President Brijlal Khabri is going to come to Delhi soon.

It is being told that many new faces have been included in this new state committee and inactive members have been sidelined. The names of the state executive have almost been decided in the meeting of all the 6 provincial presidents and the state president. Many new faces have got a place in this. Along with senior leaders, attention has been given to include young faces in the executive. About 100 people have been included in the state executive. According to State Congress President Brijlal Khabri, he has to come to Delhi on March 26-27. Where he will meet the big leaders of the party. Along with this, the state executive will be announced soon.

Historical step of Congress, 50 percent party posts reserved for women and youth, only digital membership from 2025

It will be interesting to see how effective the strategy of the Congress can be in the municipal elections going to be held in UP. The Congress had made former Rajya Sabha member Brijlal Khabri the president of UP in October 2022 itself. Through Brijlal who came from BSP, Congress tried to help the Dalit society. At the same time, out of six provincial presidents, two Brahmins, one Muslim, one Bhumihar and one Kurmi and one are from the Yadav community. In such a situation, it will be interesting to see how much the new provincial presidents – former minister Naseemuddin Siddiqui, former MLA Ajay Rai, former minister Nakul Dubey, MLA Virendra Chaudhary, Anil Yadav and Yogesh Dixit – can strengthen the Congress party in their respective societies. This will be cleared to a great extent in the municipal elections.
