Priyanka takes part in strategy session of UP Cong leaders
Amid the raging internal war in ruling Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh, Priyanka Gandhi for the first time on Monday participated in a strategy session of Congress leaders from the poll-bound state. Convened by AICC General Secretary Ghulam Nabi Azad, the hour-long meeting saw Gandhi intensely interacting with the state leaders including PCC Chief Raj Babbar, Congress CM candidate Shiela Dikshit and campaign chief Sanjay Singh. Party spokesman R P N Singh said that this was for the first time Gandhi participated in such a meeting of leaders from UP where the Assembly polls are scheduled early next year. The interaction saw some state leaders suggesting tie-ups with smaller parties like RLD and Peace Party while some pitching for block level meetings to garner support instead of taking out yatras.
The impact of Rahul Sandesh Yatras, currently touring all districts in the state, was also discussed.
