New Delhi: Congress on Saturday hailed the
announcement of Assembly poll schedule in Uttar Pradesh and
four other states, saying the exercise will again show that it
is the only pan-Indian party.

"The Congress is raring to go. It is fit as a fighting
machine. It will show yet again that it is the only pan-Indian
party with a strong presence in every nook and corner of the
country," party spokesman Abhishek Singhvi said.
