Although Priyanka Gandhi ordered the workers of his party to prepare for the polls in 2022, it is not clear whether he was considering the state elections in Uttar Pradesh in 2022 or, according to some speculation on social media, that it may also be has been confused with the fact that the next Lok Sabha elections are scheduled for 2024. Users of social networks think that Priyanka Gandhi may have mistakenly mentioned the year 2022 as the year of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. There is also speculation that Congress has already conceded 2019 by feeling the defeat in the next general election of 2019.
