Rolls Out ‘Mission UP’ With Mega Lucknow Roadshow
AMN / LUCKNOW
Newly appointed Congress general secretary and in-charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh Priyanka Gandhi Vadra reaches here today along with Congress President Rahul Gandhi and general secretary Jyotiraditya Scindia.
Priyanka Gandhi, dressed in a light kurta-churidar, stood with her brother and Congress president Rahul Gandhi, Jyotiraditya Scindia and other Congress leaders on the modified truck decorated in party colours.
For the first time in decades, the party managed to generate a buzz in UP, that too in its capital, which has voted the BJP in every election since 1991.
“Priyanka and Scindia-ji will work for the Lok Sabha election but their mission goes beyond that to the assembly polls. We will not relent until we establish a Congress government in UP,” said Rahul Gandhi in course of the roadshow, stressing that his party was in UP for the long-haul.
Addressing party workers at the end of a grand roadshow with sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra in Lucknow, Rahul said, Yahan gathbandhan bigad raha hai. Aur maine saaf bola hai ki main Mayawati ji aur Akhilesh ji ka aadar karta hun, magar Congress party poore dum se ladegi, Congress party apni vichaar dhaara ke liye ladegi aur Congress party UP ko badalne ke liye ladegi (Grand alliance has not materialised well in Uttar Pradesh. I have clearly said that I respect Mayawati ji and Akhilesh ji, but the Congress will fight with its full might, the Congress will fight for its ideology and to change UP).”
