SHOCKER DE­FEAT

DNA (Daily News & Analysis) Mumbai Edition - - FRONT PAGE -

Congress touched low­est-ever tally of just one win from UP this polls, that too from So­nia’s con­stituency of Rae Bareli.

What shocked Congress lead­er­ship was the de­feat of party pres­i­dent Rahul Gandhi from Ame­thi at the hands of Sm­riti Irani by a mar­gin of around 55,000 votes.

Priyanka would be hold­ing meet­ings with LS can­di­dates from 42 con­stituen­cies, city pres­i­dents, MLAS, exmps and MLAS to in­tro­spect the cause of Congress drub­bing in the Lok Sabha polls.

Sur­pris­ingly, Ame­thi known as Congress strong­hold for decades, was also one of the 42 Lok Sabha con­stituen­cies which was been looked after Priyanka Vadra.

Congress sources said Priyanka Vadra is likely to discuss ways and means to erect a party struc­ture that could al­low the party to set re­vival goals by 2022 As­sem­bly polls.

But will Congress achieve new tar­get? Only time will tell.
