'Should I contest from Varanasi?': Priyanka Gandhi in Rae Bareli public meet
General secretary of AICC, Priyanka Gandhi who is now quite active in the political circles has sent a secret message to the cadre that she would make electron debut also. In a response to party worker's query at a meeting in Rae Bareli on Thursday, Priyanka gave an unexpected answer: “Should I contest from Varanasi?” which has been the subject of speculation.
This remark made by Priyanka is being interpreted in all possible ways as Varanasi, the temple town is said to be the stronghold for PM Narendra Modi. She made it clear that she would be happy to contest in the polls if the party felt so. While Priyanka has been aggressively campaigning in Rae Bareli and Amethi for the past couple of days, she is receiving good response from the crowd and party workers.
On the other hand, gossips that the same idea popped up in 2014 elections also, is taking rounds. Then, did Sonia ignore her daughter's guts to lock horns with the BJP supremo? As what’s in the head of party high command is still unknown, the interesting statement made by Priyanka has lifted the spirit in Congress cadre.
