Uttar Pradesh: With no party office in Gorakhpur, Congress party working through WhatsApp, conducts meetings in marriage halls

The party leaders said that they have apprised regarding the situation to the Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, but there was no response from her side so far. 

It seems that the organisational structure of the Congress party in Uttar Pradesh is in an extremely terrible state as the party does not even have an office and is reportedly functioning through Whatsapp in Gorakhpur.

According to reports, the Congress party has vacated its office in Gorakhpur and is currently running the party through social media platforms like Whatsapp. A party functionary said the meetings are held in marriage halls and the party mostly work through WhatsApp.

According to senior party leader Syed Jamal, former district president late Bhrigunath Chaturvedi had started the Congress office in Purdilpur in Gorakhpur and it had remained the party office till 2017. “But we had to vacate the office in 2017 because the ownership rights were with someone else. Since then the Congress does not have a proper office of its own, and meetings are usually held in marriage halls,” he said.

Reportedly, the party leaders said that they have apprised regarding the situation to the Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, but there was no response from her side so far.

However, the newly appointed district Congress president Nirmal Paswan said that the party will soon get its new office. Currently, the party leaders are informally using a house in Charuchandrapuri as a makeshift office.

The Congress party is facing an existential crisis in the state of Uttar Pradesh. Despite parachuting Priyanka Gandhi into the party and appointing her as the General Secretary for the eastern Uttar Pradesh, there seems to be no improvement in the development of the party.

The party does not seem to have any vote bank in the state as its core voters have either withered with time or drifted away completely. In 2019 Lok Sabha polls, the Congress could not even secure a victory for their then President Rahul Gandhi, who had contested against Smriti Irani from the prestigious Amethi Lok Sabha seat.
