Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Congress’ trump card or hope for forthcoming Lok Sabha polls is in Lucknow today, accompanied by Jyotiraditya Scindia for the mega roadshow. Ahead of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s first visit to the state after being appointed as General Secretary of eastern UP, she is seen in a new avatar. Posters of Priyanka Gandhi as Goddess Durga can be seen on Lucknow street.
The Congress supporters have plastered many posters to welcome Priyanka Gandhi and other top leaders ahead of the roadshow, through the city from the airport to the Congress offices. "Sister Priyanka, an avatar of Goddess Durga, incinerate the regime of lying thugs," reads the poster in Hindi. The poster appears to have been put up by a Youth Congress leader in the city.
Priyanka is a big hope for the party in the make-or-break state of Uttar Pradesh ahead of Lok Sabha polls. Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s entry in politics was announced by her elder brother Rahul Gandhi as the AICC general secretary in-charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh two weeks ago. Priyanka said that she hopes to "start a new kind of politics in which everyone - even the weakest - will be a stakeholder".
Priyanka Gandhi will be accompanied by Jyotiraditya Scindia for the roadshow in Lucknow today on their first trip to the state after being appointed the Congress general secretary in-charge of eastern and western UP respectively.
