The Congress activists erupted into celebration after the formal entry of Priyanka Gandhi into the arena of national politics was announced on Wednesday. Notably, Priyanka was appointed the general secretary of the All India Congress Committee and was given the responsibility of an important state – Uttar Pradesh (UP)- on Wednesday. Exited over the development which caught them unawares, a large number of Congress activists gathered at Rajiv Bhawan, the state party headquarters, and started the celebration. Senior Congress leaders were seen distributing sweets among the exulted activists on the occasion. They said that it was a political masterstroke on the part of the UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and Congress president Rahul Gandhi to bring Priyanka into active politics.
“We are sure that the charisma of Priyanka would pull the women and young voters to the party. She would prove to be a correct match for the charisma of Narendra Modi,” said one of the cheerful-looking Congress workers.
Sounding happy over the development, the state Congress president Pritam Singh said that it would help the Congress immensely in the general elections and also thereafter. “We were impatiently looking forward to it. The stage is now set for her to embark on the political realm. We are very happy,” he said.
Terming the entry of Priyanka into politics as a game changer, Singh said the equations in UP have now changed with her being appointed as in-charge of the important state. “It has infused new energy into the Congress rank and file and they would fight the election heart and soul,” he added.
The state party vice- president Surya Kant Dhasmana said that Congress would get strengthened by the political acumen and dynamic working style of Priyanka.
“She builds an instant rapport with the people and they find a reflection of the former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in Priyanka,” he added.
The state party spokesperson Garima Dasauni said that Priyanka’s entry would boost the electoral prospects of the Congress.
