Congress on Saturday hailed the announcement of Assembly poll schedule in Uttar Pradesh and four other states, saying the exercise will again show that it is the only pan-Indian party.

"The Congress is raring to go. It is fit as a fighting machine. It will show yet again that it is the only pan-Indian party with a strong presence in every nook and corner of the country," party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi said.

The Election Commission on Saturday announced a seven-phased poll in Uttar Pradesh from February 4 to 28, while assembly elections in Punjab, Uttarakhand, Manipur and Goa will be held in a single-phase.
