Priyanka campaigns for Sonia, slams BJP's one-man show

Rae Bareli (Uttar Pradesh)


Priyanka Gandhi Vadra Wednesday hit out at the BJP's "one-man show" while campaigning for her mother and Congress president Sonia Gandhi for the Lok Sabha polls.

Priyanka told a gathering during a road show in Raseta area that the ongoing national election was a "war of ideologies". Rae Bareli goes to the polls April 30.

Without naming Narendra Modi, she accused the Bharatiya Janata Party of centralising all powers in one man, but the Congress believed in taking everyone along.

Priyanka addressed 10 election rallies in the region.

Saying that people should be aware about the national scenario and think before casting their vote.

"This election is a fight between two different ideologies. Our party believes in unity, unlike other parties."

On her grandmother, late prime minister Indira Gandhi, she said people of the region had always voted against divisive forces in the past.

"Yeh Indiraji ki karmabhumi hai, yahan sabko saath lekar chalne ki reeti rahi hai" (This is where Indira Gandhi worked, here people believe in taking everyone along), she said.

Priyanka is managing the campaign of her mother, and would also be holding fort for her brother and Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi who is contesting from neighbouring Amethi.- IANS
