Kolkata: Bengal Congress said on Tuesday that it wants party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra to campaign in the state for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
"In our list of star campaigners in Bengal, we have the name of Priyanka Gandhi. We have requested the party high command to send her for campaigning in Bengal," state Congress president Somen Mitra said. The list of star campaigners also includes AICC president Rahul Gandhi and his predecessor Sonia Gandhi. Rahul Gandhi has launched the party's poll campaign in the state on March 23, from a rally in Malda district.
After failure of seat sharing talks with CPI(M)-led Left Front in Bengal, Congress has decided to contest the poll alone in the state.
