The Congress is planning to gatecrash the Mayawati-Akhilesh Yadav party in Uttar Pradesh a day after being left out of the coalition. The party is planning to hold 13 rallies in the state and contest all 80 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh.

BENGALURU: JD(S) supremo HD Deve Gowda faces a complex fight for survival, both locally and nationally.

Discussing the Congress' poll preparedness, Bakshi said the party has an organisation and is getting ready for an election.

Sources in the party said that the state is likely to be divided into different zones with each covering about 10 Lok Sabha regions. Senior leaders and prominent leaders, who would not be contesting elections, are likely to be made in charge of these zones.

The Congress is ready to contest the Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh on its own, a senior state leader said on Friday amid speculation that the party will be kept out of an alliance between Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) in the state.
