Hoping to lift party morale and fortunes in the run-up to the 2017 assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh, the Congress has decided to bring Priyanka Gandhi Vadra out of the “family pocket borough” of Amethi-Rae Bareli for campaigning in other parts of the state.

Aware of the controversies surrounding Priyanka’s husband Robert Vadra — his company is at the centre of a probe ordered by the Haryana government into alleged irregularities in grant of licences to developers in Gurgaon — the Congress is also readying plans to counter attacks from rivals.

    Priyanka who ever must first return all illgotten money to prove that she really wants to serve India and not to continue the loot. Bringing all of sudden and hoisting on people of India is atrocious. Gone are the days where Kings used to appoint a son or daughter as kings. Even in kingdoms nowadays they undergo a long apprentice period, take up responsibilities and then are declared as President or PMs...................congress mukt bharat is round the corner.

              The eternal inferiority complex of Hindus at the sight of a white skinned European, continues.Not for them the pride of Muslims not to accept a white Christian as their leader.

                If Priyanka chooses to be active in politics the " family " must be pretty sure that Vadra lt;br/gt; will not be proven guilty in any of his court/ E D cases.It is risk that Congress is taking.If Vadra is indeed proved guilty then its all over

                  All these years , she was enjoying a very nice luxury life and now she will perform as a common man's savior in each campaign stage to attract illiterate voters. Is it the way, a political party should work ? What happened to Indian Political System. Need a cross line at some stage.
