PGV blows poll bugle on Amethi, Rae Bareli visit

LUCKNOW: After a gap of over two years, Congress national general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra visited her mother Sonia Gandhi’s constituency Rae Bareli and adjoining Amethi on Sunday. Supporters from the two Gandhi bastions queued up outside the Bhuyemau Guest House in Rae Bareli since morning to catch a glimpse of their leader and meet her.
Priyanka stopped at the Sankatmochan Hanuman Temple at the entrance of Rae Bareli and paid floral tribute to the deity. Some elderly persons and the temple priest blessed her and prayed for Congress’s good show in UP elections.
Around 11am, Priyanka reached Rae Bareli guest house and held deliberations with party workers across different levels such as panchayat, nyay panchayat and wards representing the six assembly segments of Rae Bareli.
“I urge you all to dedicate your time, energy and effort to the party 24X7 till elections. Forget everything else and immerse yourself to oust the BJP government,” Priyanka reportedly told the cadres.
She said the public sentiment was against the BJP which had failed to deliver to people from different walks of life on every count. “People are sick and tired of this government which has failed them on every single count of quality life. We must work and position ourselves as an option before them,” said a Congress worker quoting Priyanka.
Priyanka, who is also the party’s UP incharge, said the Congress leadership will roll out the campaign plan soon and added that the contribution of each worker towards the party’s Pratigya Yatra was important to bolster Congress’s prospects in 2022 elections.
Sources said Priyanka asked the workers to counter BJP’s Hindutva card among the people. “She asked us to convey to the public that even Congress has faith in Lord Ram and Krishna and its cadres also visit temples and follow rituals. But unlike the BJP, we do not use our gods for vested interests,” said a block level functionary of Congress.
After meetings in Rae Bareli, the Congress leader visited Dodarpur village of Tiloi in Amethi to meet a family which lost three children in a wall collapse incident recently.
Earlier, Priyanka took to social media to attack the Yogi government and accused the UP CM of using fake ways to sing paeans to his government.
“They give fake advertisements, fake jobs of lekhpal were offered to youth, now giving fake pictures of flyover and factories and claiming fake development. Neither do they have any understanding of the people`s issues nor do they have anything to do with it. The government is of fake advertisement and false claims,” she tweeted referring to the recent controversy in which a UP government advertisement allegedly showed the image of a flyover in Kolkata as one in UP.
