The Congress party has announced entry of Priyanka Gandhi in the Indian politics ahead of general elections, as party president Rahul Gandhi put her in charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh.
He appointed Priyanka Gandhi as general secretary of the party.
The Congress party sources also indicated that Priyanka, 47, could enter the contest from Rae Barelli.
Rae Barelli is her mother Sonia’s seat.
Sonia is not keen on contesting the elections because of health limitations. The party is determined to fight all Lok Sabha seats and win quite a number of them.
Priyanka will spread the real Congress ideology and the party agenda and change the politics of Uttar Pradesh.
According to sources, Priyanka will attract a large number of masses.
Rahul Gandhi said, “We do politics for development and people’s welfare.”

He said, let us give a new direction to politics. Priyanka Gandhi was always active in decision-making.
She played a key role in the alliance with Akhilesh Yadav’s Samajwadi Party in the 2017 Uttar Pradesh election.
