Varanasi, Feb 6: With Uttar Pradesh in the final leg of its campaigning for the first phase of elections on Monday, Congress' star campaigner and General Secretary Rahul Gandhi has given his best shot to influence the voters to choose the Congress this time around.

Rahul in his spirited speech stated that he will not leave UP after the 2012 elections and that the state has been fooled for the past 22 years. Calling the upcoming polls a cause to uplift the state from stagnation, he also said he will continue touring the state till the mission of making UP a better place is not realized. He stated, "No more an election now, but a mission."

While he expressed his respect for the other leaders like Mayawati and Mulayam Singh Yadav and claimed to have learnt valuable lessons from them, he also lambasted them saying that the UP CM was playing with the lives of people in the state. He also said that he was confident of his victory in the state and commented, "The only thing I have is that some people believe in me. If one person in UP believes me, that is enough for me."

On BSP's Mayawati's and SP's Mulayam Singh Yadav's intention to bring about change in the state, he said, "What I have seen in the last few years in this state is criminal. I am going to fight it."

Rahul also questioned senior BJP leader LK Advani's intention to get a constitutional Lokpal Bill passed and said that it was the Congress that brought in the Lokpal and the RTI, while the Opposition laughed at it.
