The Janata Dal-United has welcomed the Congress party’s decision to use Priyanka Gandhi Vadra for campaigning in Uttar Pradesh, which will have assembly polls next year. It said Priyanka could play a crucial role in defeating the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the state.

“I am delighted if the Congress has decided to launch Priyanka Gandhi for campaigning in the Uttar Pradesh elections and it is only going to benefit the goal to defeat the Bharatiya Janata Party,” JD (U) leader Shyam Rajak told media.

“Our leader Nitish Kumar also reiterated the intention of the party, and with unity, we will defeat the BJP and Priyanka Gandhi will also play a crucial role,” he added.

The Congress got a fillip in poll-bound Uttar Pradesh (UP) with Priyanka Gandhi agreeing to campaign for the party ahead of the assembly polls early next year.

After she reviewed the UP strategy along with party vice-president Rahul Gandhi and selected senior leaders, state unit chief Raj Babbar and poll campaign in charge Sanjay Singh said Priyanka had agreed to campaign for the party but details are yet to be worked out.

      How can she hope to float with the mill stones of Congress his' corruption and husband Robert Vadra hanging around her neck.lt;br/gt; If JD(U) is so confident of victory why don't they try some seat sharing in U P elections with congress, the Bihar way?

            These corrupt congress are thinking priyanka looks like India hi, so people will vote for these s. Fool corrupt congress do not know where is Indira and Priyanka's status? Now the people of our country are not fool to vote for these more corrupt people and they(the people of our nation) do not want to rule leaders like land mafias and scam mafias, fraud leaders, hence these goons are not going to get any vote from the people.

              This is the last trump card of the corrupt congress. Nothing is going to happen for BJP and BJP will win with full majority in all coming elections. The people of our country are now became realize who is working good job for our nation's interest. These opposition goons are only want power and loot our poor people's money. Everybody knows this priyanka's husband and land mafial Vadra has looted our poor farmer's land and became Rajamaharja and her brother joker pappu became yuvaraj. These goons are not going to get even double digit vote for coming election, as these s are corrupt people.

                    Hope this Nehru family woman takes her famous hubby Robert Vadra also to UP. Now it is proved that GFN RaGa is a GFN and he does not have any thing in his brains except for dynastic arrogance.
