The face of Congress Party's campaign in the 2017 UP Assembly polls today thanked the party's leadership for the opportunity and said she would go into the polls with a conviction to win. Addressing the media after the announcement of her name as CM candidate for UP polls, Dikshit said, "I wish to fulfill this responsibility sincerely and improve Congress' performance in the Assembly elections." When asked about the party's chances in UP, she said, "We (Congress members) will fight together. The demand for Congress' return to power in the state is also rising." Responding to question as to how she would help the party rise from the current low position in the state, she said, "Every election is a challenge. Sometimes it is big, sometimes small. And all challenges are not the same. Challenge is big in UP and we will go into the elections with the conviction that we are certainly going to win." Dikshit also said she would like Priyanka Gandhi to campaign whenever she wishes to.
