The party’s 36-member pradesh election committee also has chief ministerial candidate Sheila Dikshit, Congress legislature party leader Pradeep Mathur, state leaders Sanjay Singh, Pramod Tiwari, Salman Khursheed, PL Punia and Sriprakash Jaiswal as its members.

“Congress president Sonia Gandhi has approved the pradesh election committee for Uttar Pradesh,” said a statement released by party’s general secretary Janardan Dwivedi.
