New Delhi: Commotion was witnessed during a meeting of the screening committee of UP Congress which was called in order to finalise the second list of suitable candidates for the upcoming Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh.

Things came to such a sorry pass that UP party president Rita Bahuguna got furious and left the meeting in a huff.


Later on, party General Secretary Rahul Gandhi was briefed about the incident.
The same ugly scene over deciding the name of candidates was witnessed in the earlier meeting also. The Congress released its first list which contained the names of 73 candidates.

There was so much confusion over some names that not a single name figured during the 4-5 hour meeting.


Those who attended the meeting include head of party’s selection committee Mohan Prakash, party general secretary Digvijay Singh, CLP leader Pramod Tiwari, Charan Das Mahant and Madhusoodan Mistri.
