LUCKNOW: Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s claim on fielding “weak” candidates in Uttar Pradesh to eat into the BJP’s votes does not wash with Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav, who said today that he “didn’t believe” it. He also said the Congress had no support in the state.
Yesterday, Priyanka Gandhi had said Congress candidates would cut into BJP votes wherever they were not strong enough to win. “It is clear that our candidates are putting up a tough fight. Where they are strong enough, they will win on their own. Where they carry less weight, we have fielded such candidates that they would eat into BJP votes,” Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said.
