Lucknow, Aug. 21 (ANI): Leaving no stone unturned to win the politically crucial state of Uttar Pradesh, the Congress Party on Sunday said that it would through the '27 saal-UP behaal' bus yatra focus on the loop holes creating hindrances in the state's development.

Congress leader Rita Bahuguna Joshi said the yatra will lay emphasis on all pertinent issues, especially the deteriorating law and order situation, in the state.

"The Samajwadi Party has already collapsed. The law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh has broken down. There are lot of issues like corruption, farmers issues and many more in the state, but the main issue in UP is of the deteriorating law and order," said Joshi.

"The Congress Party is very alert. We also have a meeting tomorrow in this regard, where we will decide the future course of action," she added.

Buoyed by the encouraging response received by party president Sonia Gandhi during her road show in Varanasi, the Congress today kick-started the second leg of its yatra in western Uttar Pradesh.

The grand old party will during the three-day yatra try to highlight the deteriorating law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh in the last 27 years.

AICC general secretary in-charge of Uttar Pradesh, Ghulam Nabi Azad, flagged off the yatra from Lucknow. (ANI)
