Priyanka Maurya, the poster lady for the Congress celebration’s marketing campaign ‘Ladki Hoon, Lad Sakti Hoon’ for Uttar Pradesh polls has alleged that the celebration’s ticket distribution within the state was rigged.
“They (Congress) used my face, my name and my 10 lakh social media followers for the campaign. But when it came to the ticket for the upcoming election, it was given to someone else. This is injustice. It is all pre-decided. I did not get the ticket because I am an OBC girl and could not bribe Priyanka Gandhi’s secretary Sandeep Singh,” Priyanka Maurya, vp of Mahila Congress in Uttar Pradesh, stated in a tweet.
Priyanka Maurya had wished to contest the UP polls from the Sarojini Nagar seat in Lucknow. Nonetheless, the celebration allotted the seat to Rudra Daman Singh.
The allegations come a day after the Congress celebration introduced its first checklist of 125 candidates for the upcoming Uttar Pradesh Meeting elections on Thursday. The celebration fielded 50 ladies candidates, making up 40 p.c ladies out of the overall candidates.
Maurya stated that she entered politics pondering that she would have the ability to assist folks and make a distinction. “I am a doctor who has done social work. Everyone said I’d get the ticket. The party said it would be decided based on the observers’ report. The observers recommended my name, but I did not get the ticket,” she instructed India Immediately.
The Congress celebration yesterday gave ticket to the Unnao rape sufferer’s mom, Poonam Pandey, an Asha employee; activist Sadaf Jafar amongst others within the first checklist of candidates. Addressing a press convention, Priyanka Gandhi stated 40 p.c of the Congress candidates are ladies and one other 40 per cent are youth — a transfer that exhibits the celebration is making a brand new and historic starting.
