Lucknow: Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi is on a visit to her mother's parliamentary constituency Rae Bareli today (Sunday) after spending two days in Uttar Pradesh's capital Lucknow. Priyanka Gandhi first bowed and worshipped at the Hanuman temple in Churuva as she entered the Rae Bareli city. She also sought blessings from the pandit of the temple. Priyanka has bowed down several times in this temple in the past.
On the other hand, Congress leaders fought among themselves to welcome Priyanka Gandhi. In the video, the workers were seen arguing with each other. The command of Priyanka Gandhi's Rae Bareli reception in the Congress party is in the hands of Sonia Gandhi's Rae Bareli representative K Sharma and he is trying to accomplish this task very well. For the last 3 days, he sat in Rae Bareli and held a meeting with the workers of the district level Congress Party from Gram Panchayat to Nyay Panchayat.
As soon as the news of Priyanka's arrival reached the Congress workers, the streets of Rae Bareli were filled with hoardings and banners, and posters. The 2022 elections are looking very challenging in Rae Bareli as compared to the 2017 elections, as neither Akhilesh Singh nor Dinesh was opposed in Rae Bareli in 2017, both of whom were allies of the Congress party. The Congress party had an agreement with the then CM Akhilesh Yadav in UP, but now Dinesh Singh is not in the Congress party. At the same time, Akhilesh Singh's daughter Aditi Singh, despite being a Congress MLA, has raised questions on her own party many times.
