"I am coming tomorrow to Lucknow to meet all of you. I have hope in my heart that together we will start a new kind of politics, a politics in which all of you will be stakeholders -- my young friends, my sisters and even the weakest person, all their voices will be heard," Priyanka Gandhi is heard saying in the audio message shared through the Congress's Shakti App and phone calls to voters.
"Come, let's build a new future, new politics with me. Thank you," she said.
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.

"Come, join us and bring change to Uttar Pradesh," he said.
