It is to be known that Jitin Prasad was among the 23 leaders who had written a letter to party president Sonia Gandhi last year demanding active leadership and organizational elections in the Congress. Regarding the controversy related to the letter, the Congress Committee of Lakhimpur Kheri district of Uttar Pradesh had passed a resolution demanding action against him, due to which there was also a dispute. However, Prasad later said that he has full faith in the current leadership of the Congress. Jitin Prasada is the son of senior Congress leader Jitendra Prasad who served in many important positions in the party. He also contested the election of Congress President against Sonia Gandhi. Jitin Prasad won the Lok Sabha elections for the first time from Shahjahanpur in 2004 and was made Minister of State for Steel in the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government led by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. After this, he won the Dhaurahra seat in 2009. Then he took over the responsibility of Minister of State for Petroleum and Natural Gas, Road Transport and Highways and Human Resource Development in the UPA government. Jitin Prasad, who established himself as the big Brahmin face of the Congress in Uttar Pradesh, faced defeat in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. After this, he tried his hand in the last assembly elections from Tilhar seat, but in this too he was disappointed. He had also lost from Dhaurahra in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. He was made Congress in-charge for West Bengal a few months back. There the alliance of Congress and Left parties had to face a crushing defeat in the state assembly elections. Congress did not succeed in winning even a single seat.
