Priyanka Gandhi holds janata darbar in Rae Bareli,sets party agenda

Priyanka met more than 300 people in groups in janata darbar at Bhuvemau guest house.

In yet another first,Priyanka Gandhi Vadra held “janata darbar” in Rae Bareli Tuesday to listen to the problems of locals from Rae Bareli and Amethi — the Lok Sabha constituencies represented respectively by her mother and Congress president Sonia Gandhi and brother and Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi.

The janata darbar at Bhuvemau guest house ground began around 10 am and Priyanka met more than 300 people in groups. The locals came with different requests — from seeking help for treatment of their ailing family members,to seeking better road connectivity and drinking water.

“She met locals in groups,personally took their applications and assured them of all possible help,” said a Congress functionary.

She also met newly-appointed presidents of gram panchayat,Nyaya Panchayat and the block leaders to set the next two months’ agenda — undertake padyatras (footmarch) to spread message about UPA’s food security scheme.

A party leader said she met about 1000 functionaries. “She asked us to target state government for non implementation of the food security scheme and poor implementation of other centrally funded schemes,” a party functionary said.
