Lucknow, Aug 14 (PTI) The Congress is yet to put its house in order in Uttar Pradesh following its drubbing in the recent Assembly polls and a section of the party's state unit feels that the delay might impede efforts for a revival in the 2024 general elections.

The party is in the throes of an "existential crisis" with no state unit chief after Ajay Kumar Lallu's removal in March following its worst ever show in the Assembly elections. The Congress could get only two seats, down from the earlier seven in the state, which has 403 Assembly seats.

Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who has been calling the shots in UP, had come to attend the party’s three-day "Nav Sankalp Karyashala" in the first week of June but left the same day.
