Mother of the girl who was raped in Unnao is the Congress candidate

The Congress has announced the first phase candidate list for the upcoming Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections. Priyanka Gandhi, one of the general secretaries of the party in charge of Uttar Pradesh, has announced the list of candidates. The list of 125 candidates in the first phase has been released. The most notable presence on the list is the candidate from Unnao. The Congress candidate in Unnao is the mother of the girl who was raped by BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar.

According to Priyanka Gandhi, 50 out of 125 women are women. The list of candidates has been prepared with emphasis on women and youth. Of the 125, 40 per cent are women and 40 per cent are youth. Thus, about 80 per cent of the maximum number of new recruits will be from the Congress. According to Priyanka Gandhi, the Congress is launching a new politics in UP through a historic decision.

The Congress is releasing its list of candidates for the first time in Uttar Pradesh. The BJP and SP are just preparing to release their candidates. Prior to that, the Congress had released its candidate list earlier than usual. In 2017, the highly controversial Unnao rape case came to light. The complainant had alleged that the MLA had raped a 19-year-old girl who had come to the MLA’s office in search of work. The case came to national attention when the girl tried to commit suicide in front of Kuldeep Sengar’s house. Kuldeep Sengar’s brother had brutally beaten to death his father, who was questioned for raping the girl. This provoked huge protests across the country.

With the result of the last election, the Congress, which had lost just seven seats, was reduced to the least influential party in the state. Rahul and Priyanka have been actively trying to bring the controversy surrounding the Hathras rape case and the Unnao rape to national attention. The Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections to 403 Assembly constituencies will be held in seven phases. The election will be held from February 10, 14, 20, 23, 27 and March 3 and 7. Counting will take place on March 10.
