Priyanka Gandhi Vadra makes political debut in Uttar Pradesh

Marking her political debut ahead of Lok Sabha polls Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Congress general secretary in-charge of East Uttar Pradesh, arrived at the Lucknow airport on Monday afternoon to a rousing reception by party leaders and workers.

Accompanied by Congress president Rahul Gandhi and Jyotiraditya Scindia, in-charge of the western region, a beaming Priyanka Gandhi waved at partymen jostling for a glimpse of her.

As the ‘rath’ rolled on, it was a selfie galore with enthusiastic partymen taking vantage positions to click prized photographs for posterity. When the trio embarked on a roughly 25-km-long roadshow through major thoroughfares of the state capital, rose petals were sprinkled and marigold garlands showered at their cavalcade.

A day before her maiden visit to the region, Priyanka Gandhi said she hopes to start a “new kind of politics” in which everyone will be a stakeholder.
