In a significant departure from its earlier stand, the Congress on Thursday said it wants Priyanka Vadra to assume a “leadership role” in the party. In the past, the party always maintained that it was up to Priyanka to take a decision on the issue.
Stating that Congress workers always wanted “all members of the Gandhi family” to enter politics, party spokesperson Shobha Oza said, “Be it the demand for Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi earlier or now Priyanka, we want that all three of them should take up a leadership role in the party.”
Oza was responding to questions about a poster in Allahabad proclaiming that Priyanka would soon join active politics. The poster read, “Congress ka moon, Priyanka is coming soon.”
The party, however, is divided on the impact of Priyanka’s possible entry. Many feel it would mean admitting Rahul’s failure, while some are apprehensive about how the youth will see the entry of another Nehru-Gandhi family member.
While the family remains tight-lipped on the issue, Priyanka continues to attend internal meetings, quietly helping Rahul in planning the revival of the Congress.
