Congress  to welcome defectors with open arms
Lucknow,March 14(HS) If the list released by the Congress on Wednesday is an indication,the party will depend on its old war- horses and defectors to win elections in Uttar Pradesh. A few instances will make it bare.The party has given ticket to Shavitri Bai Phule who was elected from Bahraich Lok Sabha constituency in 2014.She was a BJP nominee and had resigned recently. It was speculated after the resignation that she would join the BSP and contest as a party candidate in 2019.She is believed to have met party supremo Mayawati and was also in touch with the Congress. Before others could decide,the Congress offered the seat to her which she has accepted.It may encourage other rebels to come to the party. It has also banked on old candidates of the party. Sri Prakash Jaiswal is an example .Appointed state party president in 2000,he has successfully contested election for the party in 1999,2004 and 2009.He has been asked to contest from Kanpur again. Raja Ram Pal is another party veteran who has been selected.State party president Raj Babbar has been asked to fight,too.He will seek election from Muradabad. A candidate from Ghaziabad,he had lost the electoral battle in 2014 to general V K Singh. HS/RN
