A tie-up with Google is enabling three lakh Youth Congress office-bearers to share real-time feedback from the ground and with this, Congress hopes to unleash a coordinated election campaign.
In-charge for UP Virendra Rathore said YC had added 3.5 lakh members in western parts of the state, 4 lakh in eastern parts, 3 lakh in central and 2 lakh in
Bundelkhand during a membership drive undertaken in the past two years.
Mr Gandhi led the drive.
All-India president Rajiv Satav, while claiming YC was the largest political organisation in the world to have networked after a tie-up with Google, said members had been trained to share ground reports, which could be seen by Mr Gandhi among other senior leaders.
Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi is banking on an army of 12.5 lakh Youth Congress (YC) members to rally behind party candidates in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh (UP).
Each polling booth in UP will be manned by 10 YC members.
