New Delhi: Five phases of elections have been held in the country. Now the sixth and seventh phase elections are left. While Congress has planned to run its campaign vigorously in both these phases, it is also putting forward grassroots issues in a strategic manner. Delhi, Haryana, Himachal and Punjab are very important for Congress. This time Congress is expected to perform better in all these states. Out of these four states, except Punjab, in the remaining three places the contest is between BJP and Bharat Alliance, whereas in Haryana and Himachal, there is a direct contest between BJP and Congress. There are a total of 35 seats in these four states and the Union Territory of Chandigarh, out of which 24 seats went to the BJP, while two seats went to the Akali Dal, which was part of the NDA at that time. Congress got eight seats and AAP got one seat. This time Congress is expecting better from here, that is why Congress is trying its best in these states.

Strategy to stop BJP in Delhi

Congress is contesting elections on all seven seats of Delhi under the banner of Bharat Alliance along with AAP. Here the leaders of Congress and AAP have started campaigning for each other, so that coordination can be created between each other's cadre and voters at the grassroots level. Recently, Rahul Gandhi had said in a campaign in Delhi that this time I will press the button on the broom and Kejriwal will hit his paw. Kejriwal has also given a similar message to his cadre in the Chandni Chowk meeting. Both the parties together are making every possible effort to stop the hat-trick of Modi government on all the seven seats of Delhi. Till now Rahul Gandhi and Kharge have held one rally each in Delhi, while on Thursday Rahul is going to hold rallies in North East and North West, while Sachin Pilot is also active here.Will Congress be able to take advantage of the anti-incumbency wave in Haryana?
BJP has been winning ten seats in Haryana for the last two times, but this time Congress has high hopes from here. Congress has fielded big faces like Deepender Singh Hooda and Kumari Selja. Assembly elections are to be held here after a few months, that is why Congress is putting in full effort here. Congress is trying to capitalize on the anti-incumbency wave of ten years against the double engine government of BJP here. According to sources, Congress has planned to focus more on inflation and unemployment as well as farmers' issues, especially MSP guarantee and Agniveer, in these states in the remaining two phases. Actually, the resentment at the ground level regarding farmers' issues is the highest in Punjab and Haryana in the country. Apart from these two states, a large number of youth from Himachal Pradesh also join the army, so Congress is raising this issue prominently here. In Haryana, Congress has given the Kurukshetra seat to AAP under the alliance. Congress is working on a strategy to win as many seats as possible here and create a strong base for itself in view of the assembly elections in the state. Looking at the possibilities in Haryana, Congress is holding rallies here. On Wednesday, Rahul Gandhi held three rallies in the state in Mahendragarh, Panchkula and Sonipat.

Concern for prestige in Himachal
Congress wants to win maximum seats in Himachal Pradesh. Mandi seat especially remains a question of prestige for Congress. Congress has made the contest very interesting by fielding Vikramaditya Singh against Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut. Mandi has been associated with prestige for the family of former Himachal Pradesh CM Virbhadra Singh. Virbhadra Singh and his wife Pratibha Singh have been winning from here. At the same time, Congress wants to give a message to BJP by vacating seats from here that it still has a hold on the state. It is noteworthy that the Sukhu government of Congress was saved here during the Rajya Sabha elections. In such a situation, this election is also related to CM Sukhwinder Singh Sukhu's own political reputation.

Desire to repeat old performance in Punjab

In Punjab, Congress and AAP are contesting separately. Congress, which won eight seats last time, is once again hoping to repeat its old performance. Here both the parties are trying to ensure that there is a contest between them on most of the seats. BJP and Akali Dal are also in the fray here, but the effect of both the parties fighting separately is not visible on the ground like last time. It is believed that at many places both these parties will cut each other's votes. Congress is seeing this as an advantage for itself. There is anti-incumbency against the AAP government in Punjab for about two years, Congress is trying to take advantage of this resentment. Last time Congress had to face factionalism here, but this time the party has been successful in overcoming it to a great extent. Many Congress leaders of Punjab have gone to BJP, prominent among them are Preneet Kaur and Ravneet Singh Biddu, while Congress has fielded all its important faces here, including names like former CM Charanjit Singh Channi, state president Amarinder Singh Raja Vading, Sukhpal Singh Khaira. , Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa, sitting MP Amar Singh, Gurjeet Singh Aujla, Vijay Inder Singla and Dharamvir Gandhi are prominent.
