not getting expected result while using passport in nodejs for authentication

in server.js :

var User = mongoose.model('User'); passport.use(new LocalStrategy( function(username,password,done){

  User.findOne({username:username}).exec(function(err,user){

      if(user){
          return done(null,user);
      } else{

          return done(null,false);
      }

  });   
 }
 ));
  passport.serializeUser(function(user,done){

if(user){
    done(null,user._id);
} });

passport.deserializeUser(function(id,done){

User.findOne({_id : id}).exec(function(err,user){

    if(user){
          return done(null,user);
      } else{

          return done(null,false);
      }
}); });

express.js :

app.use(session({secret : 'multivision unicorns', resave : false, saveUninitialized : false})); app.use(passport.initialize()); app.use(passport.session());

routes.js :

app.post('/login', function(req,resp,next){

console.log("hitting /login call in routes");

var auth = passport.authenticate('local', function(err,user){


    console.log("Calling auth function");
    console.log("User data : " + user);

    if(err) {return next(err);}

    if(!user){
        resp.send({success : false});
    }

    req.logIn(user, function(err){
        if(err) { return next(err);}

        resp.send({success:true, user:user});
    })
});

auth(req,resp,next);
 });

in controller :

angular.module('app').controller('navbarCtrl', function($scope,$http){

$scope.signIn = function(username,password){

    console.log("I am trying to login to website");

    $http.post('/login',{username:username}).then(function(response){

       if(response.data.success){
           console.log('logged in to webiste buddy!!!');
       } 
       else{
           console.log("Unable to login DUDE!!!!");
       }
    });
}
     });

terminal Output :

hitting /login call in routes Calling auth function User data : false (User data is always false even though I tried with the existing user data in DB) POST /login 200 29.125 ms - 17
