In UP, the political battle has become fierce for the upcoming assembly elections. Congress party is far away from power in UP for a long time. In such a situation, now the party wants to return home through the traditional vote bank. As its next political bet, the party is now trying to win the trust of Dalit, Muslim and Brahmin voters. According to a Dalit leader of the Congress party, following the Corona protocol, the party will now meet influential people of the Dalit community in small groups.
Congress wanted to cultivate Dalit voters by making Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi a medium, but just before the elections, the increasing cases of Corona foiled these efforts of the party. Let us tell you that the Dalit Conference of Congress to be held in Kanpur in the second week of January has been postponed for the time being. Channi was expected to attend the conference. The conference was postponed due to Corona, the party is now changing its strategy to compensate for its brunt.
Congress has made many Chief Ministers belonging to the Dalit community. The Congress has always given respect to the first Dalit Chief Minister of Punjab, Charanjit Singh Channi, Damodar Sanjeevaiah of Dalit community in Andhra Pradesh, Jagannath Pahadia of Dalit community in Rajasthan, Bhola Paswan in Bihar, Sushil Kumar Shinde in Maharashtra as Chief Minister.
