Vastavam web: AICC general secretary Priyanka Gandhi may not visit Telangana State as she is campaigning in Uttar Pradesh. According to TPCC senior leaders, AICC president Rahul Gandhi has given a tough assignment to Priyanka in UP where Congress is not in a good position. They said that in the event of Priyanka contesting the Lok Sabha election from Amethi or Rae Bareli in UP, chances of her campaign in other parts of the country including Telangana would be slim.
On the other hand, the Congress would launch nationwide campaign in the first week of March and Priyanka may confine herself to UP till the end of the campaign. Her visit to Telangana may be expected only if she gets some relief from the UP responsibilities since the Parliament polls would be held in several phases. Like in the Assembly elections, the Telangana Congress is much dependent on the campaign of Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi. Rahul addressed six public meetings during the Assembly polls and Sonia one.
This time also, the PCC leaders hope that they would campaign for the party in the State. However, Sonia may not come due to her poor health and Priyanka is busy in UP. In the absence of Sonia and Priyanka, Rahul may have to take the complete responsibility of campaigning in Telangana. A party leader said that most of the scheduled caste people and Muslims still have affection for Indira Gandhi. Priyanka’s campaign in the State would remind them of Indira and it would help the Congress to reap good electoral benefits.
