Madhusudan Mistry,the newly appointed Congress general secretary in-charge of Uttar Pradesh,on Tuesday said the BJP wont be a challenge for him and his party in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections since he has seen Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and his confidante Amit Shah,who has been made BJPs in-charge in UP,work in Gujarat.
I dont see them (Amit Shah and Narendra Modi) or the BJP as a challenge at all. I have seen their work, Mistry told The Indian Express over the phone.
Moreover,why bother about them because after all they have only 10 Lok Sabha seats in the state out of 80, added Mistry,who is also from Gujarat.

He said he will visit Lucknow next week and hold meetings with senior party leaders and workers from the state on June 28. He will discuss the current functioning of the state unit and prepare the future course of action for the party in the state. Being regarded as man of the cadre,party workers in the state are hopeful that once in Lucknow,Mistry would hear their grievances.
The low-profile leader,who is being credited for the partys recent victory in the Karnataka Assembly elections and considered close to Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi,said he is prepared to give his 100 per cent to Uttar Pradesh. I have to give my best, he added.
He has listed re-organisation of the state unit on the top of his priority list. Its been just two days (since he became the in-charge of UP unit of the party),but I have come to know that re-organisation of the unit is pending for long in the state, Mistry added.
In October last year,Rahul Gandhi had given the task of partys re-organisation in the state to its eight zonal presidents,which included Union Ministers as well as the MLAs. But they failed to complete the task even after eight months of their appointment. The zonal in-charges were changed last month,but the re-organisation is still pending. Party has announced just 31 districts and city presidents out of the 114 units across the state.
Even the state Congress committee has not been formed since the appointment of Congress state president Nirmal Khatri in September 2012.
