Priyanka Gandhi on Thursday indicated that Congress’ decision to go it alone in Lok Sabha elections in Uttar Pradesh is unlikely to yield results this time but said it would strengthen the party in the long run.

Replying to a question whether there is any chance for for Congress in UP outside Rae Bareli and Amethi, she said "I definitely see it. But I see hope in future. It is unlikely to see the results in this election. I think it’s a wise decision that we went it alone. This is going to strengthen the party eventually.“

To a question why she confines herself to Amethi and Rae Bareli and does not campaign in other constituenceis, Priyanka told reporters in Utarawan that “I am not in active politics and I have no intention to do it as well. Then why to raise the people’s hopes by moving throughout the country?”
