Priyanka to campaign only in Raebareli, Amethi

Priyanka Gandhi will campaign only in Raebareli and Amethi, Congress said on Monday putting at rest speculation about her larger role in electioneering across the country for the Lok Sabha polls.

Party sources, however, said that she will coordinate the country-wide tour programmes of Sonia and Rahul Gandhi.

“She will campaign only in Raebareli and Amethi,” AICC general secretary Ajay Maken said replying to queries. Priyanka’s meeting with top Congress leaders earlier this week at the residence of her brother Rahul had created a flutter in political circles, triggering speculation whether she is in for a major role ahead of the Lok Sabha polls. Sonia Gandhi’s political secretary Ahmed Patel, Union Minister Jairam Ramesh, AICC general secretaries Madhusudan Mistri, Janardan Dwivedi, Ajay Maken and party ideologue Mohan Gopal were present in the meeting. There was speculation on whether Priyanka will assume an active political role to perk up Congress performance in the elections.
