Allahabad: Former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit and the face of Uttar Pradesh Congress Chief Ministerial candidate said today the Congress will form the next government in UP.

Addressing a rally here, the party’s chief ministerial candidate said in the last 27 years Uttar Pradesh had been destroyed by casteist and communal forces.

Only the Congress, she said, was pro-development and it would usher in progress and prosperity in the state.

Dikshit also said that industry and business in Uttar Pradesh were in a sorry state and only a development oriented government could save them.

She said people were fed up with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) and the Samajwadi Party (SP) and were yearning for change.

Dikshit later flagged of a truck carrying relief material for the flood affected people. Many parts of Allahabad have been hit by floods over the past one month.
