In a letter to Sonia Gandhi, 25 leaders ask Priyanka Gandhi to lead the 2024 Lok Sabha
25 Top leaders of Congress want Priyanka Gandhi to head the Congress 2024 Lok Sabha campaign. These 25 including the chief ministers and MPs wrote a letter to Sonia Gandhi last week.
New Delhi is agog with speculation whether such internal churning will lead to major upheaval in Congress organization.
Apart from this the buzz at 10 Janpath where three Gandhis jointly reside, Priyanka’s ability to imitate Indira Gandhi is a fast-emerging fact.
Priyanka Gandhi is keen on rallies. She held a rally in Telangana and she is expected to address one in Madhya Pradesh on June 12, where she is likely to amplify the party’s promise of an income guarantee of Rs.1,500 to women. She is also likely to campaign extensively in Chhattisgarh, sources said.
After back-to-back Congress victories in Himachal Pradesh and Karnataka, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is set to play an important role in the party’s campaigns in elections later this year, particularly in Telangana and Madhya Pradesh.
‘Mahila Samvaad’ (women forums), an idea she floated and implemented in the party’s campaign centered around women in the Uttar Pradesh election last year, was also part of the Congress’s campaign in the recent Karnataka polls. It will be an integral part of the Congress’s upcoming poll campaigns, as will be the promise of income support for women, free cylinders, and free public transport. These are also among the Congress’s five guarantees in Karnataka, which are believed to have contributed significantly to the party’s historic victory, winning 135 of 224 seats. The party is expected to announce schemes exclusively for women in all four states where elections are due this year – Madhya Pradesh, Telangana, Rajasthan, and Chattisgarh.
