Q.

Congress (read Rahul Gandhi) failed to get more votes in UP, because of weak and infighting-ridden local Congress set up. In spite of the hard work done by one individual, Rahul. Don't you think so???

Infighting could be the key reason.
The oldest party of the nation badly misses the local cadre working within people. If they had it, they could have been the party with the single largest elected candidates much above 200++.

It is sad that rahul could not save his face. the local state politics is so strong now , that people wish a local neta to have as their CM rather than have a national party rule a proxy way by appointing a local as CM.
like in tamil nadu , we have only dmk and admk , likewise Up seems to be fir enough only for sp and bsp.

There is an old saying"As you sow you reap".The majority of major scams and corruption being brought to light almost a new one every day and the Congress treating the common man as a the most useless fellow and it's over confidence brought the well deserved downfall of Congress.

Reasons are backlash of annaji and ramdev baba campaign .projecting rahul gandhi as prime minister/robert vadara and prinyka gandhi seeking entry in indian politics.scams of crores in 2d etc.challenging election commission for violations done by congress ministers etc cause fall of congress/it is also a vote against dynastic rule of nehru family perhaps.

Thats one of the reasons no doubt, but even Rahul lacks leadership qualities and who knows his hard work was a result of media hype or any thing concrete, besides has the farmer movements reached to the grass root level, no body knows for sure. Rahul is shown taking meals with the local farmers, sitting in mats, eating from their plates, but does it mean he is really caring for them . Well people of UP have done the right thing. They have voted for a regional party as they can see the future with Akhilesh (Mulayam's son) , Congress has not been able to deal effectiviely even in the centre , how can it tackle the local issues of UP.

Both BJP and Congress have failed badly to the extent of calling their status in the UP as 'battered' in the elections. Clearly they have lost the local touch or relevance, as it appears.
