The Congress in Uttar Pradesh will not contest the upcoming by-elections to two Lok Sabha seats in the state. State Congress vice president Yogesh Dixit issued a statement on Monday saying that the party had decided not to contest the Lok Sabha by-elections in view of the recent Assembly polls.
He said that the party was revamping and strengthening itself to meet the challenges of the 2022 general elections. The Congress in Uttar Pradesh has been without a state president since the past three months and completely rudderless on matters of policy.
