Rai, who challenged Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2014 and 2019 Lok Sabha elections, is considered to be an aggressive leader. Rai said that a large number of party leaders and workers would accompany him from Varanasi to UPCC headquarters at Lucknow when he takes charge as the UPCC president.

The Congress decided to appoint Rai as the new UPCC president on Thursday. He replaces Dalit leader Brijlal Khabri who failed to complete a year in office.
