Senior Congress leader and MP Saifuddin Soz on Monday said he sees the party and Rahul Gandhi soaring in the upcoming polls results of Uttar Pradesh saying "Rahul will emerge victorious but the achievement may not be spectacular as many people expect".
"It is my conviction and my assessment of the situation in UP that Rahul Gandhi will emerge victorious in elections there," said Soz in a statement.
The exit polls may not be reflecting the reality fully, Soz said, Rahul has amply proved his mettle in the last Parliamentary Election. "In the assembly elections of UP, local issues dominate and a vision of a long term policy issues gets blurred in misplaced propaganda. Therefore, Rahul Gandhi's achievement may not be spectacular as many people expect," said Soz.
Soz said he supports Congress leader Digvijaya Singh's view that "even if the results for the Congress party is less than very heart-warming, the blame can not go to Rahul Gandhi".
