When Priyanka Gandhi Vadra arrives on her first visit to Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee (UPCC) headquarters here on Monday, she will have her task cut out for her to build the party organisation in the state ahead of the Lok Sabha election.

A list of the existing team of office bearers has been already made available to the All India Congress Committee (AICC) and the state unit is getting ready with briefs about them to let the leadership know about their experience, potential and usefulness for the party organisation.

Priyanka, who has been appointed Congress general secretary for east Uttar Pradesh, will hold meetings with the partymen from 42 Lok Sabha constituencies. Her counterpart Jyotiraditya Scindia, the Congress general secretary for west UP, will interact with the partymen from 38 parliamentary seats.

Accompanied by Congress president Rahul Gandhi, both Priyanka and Jyotiraditya, will reach the UPCC headquarters in a procession from Amausi airport here on Monday.

While Rahul Gandhi will leave the same day, Priyanka and Jyotiraditya Scindia will camp in Lucknow till February 14, to take feedback from partymen and gear up the cadres for the Lok Sabha election.

Rahul Gandhi has tasked both the leaders to form the next government in Uttar Pradesh.

A breakup of Lok Sabha constituencies in east and west UP indicates Priyanka will have seats of central UP, including Lucknow, under her charge, besides the districts of east UP. Scindia, on the other hand, will have the Bundelkhand region under his charge, besides the districts of west UP.
