UP polls: Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's first rally on family turf today
Feb 17 2017 by Desiree Burns
"If she (Priyanka Gandhi) comes to campaign here, she has to answer the people's questions", the Minister said when asked by a reporter about Priyanka Gandhi still missing from the onoging campaigning in Uttar Pradesh.
Sonia has stayed away from poll campaign so far. They said that Priyanka will accompany Rahul to these rallies.
Smriti Irani took potshots on her rival while addressing a rally in Amethi.
It is clear that Ms Irani is not concerned about Rahul Gandhi speaking at Rae Barelli but Priyanka not speaking at Amethi. this provided a big opportunity for Ms Irani to dig at Congress in general and Priyanka Gandhi in particular.
Irani, who had lost to Rahul Gandhi in the Lok Sabha polls 2014, said she has been working for the people of the constituency despite the defeat.
Priyanka will have to do a tightrope walk in the four constituencies and her narrative in the campaign will be interesting to watch since the main opponents on these seats are from the alliance partner.

Other women being suggested include Olivia Colman (5/1), and Phoebe Waller-Bridge ( 12/1). "I don't see why not", Moffat said. The award winning actress is even more popular in Scotland, with 10/1 odds in her favorite.
Assembly constituencies under Amethi and Raebareli go to polls in the 4th and 5th phase of polling in the state on February 23 and 27.
While her name has been repeatedly appearing in the star campaigner list of the party, she is likely to restrict herself to Amethi-Rae Bareli only, an informed party source told IANS.
Every BJP worker wants that the party forms the next government in Uttar Pradesh, she said on the question of chief ministerial candidate. The most complex is the Amethi seat where the Congress has fielded Amita Sinh, wife of Congress campaign committee chief and MP Sanjay Sinh, while the SP has fielded against her state minister Gayatri Prajapati.
Sources said winning Raebareilly and Amethi Assembly segments have become a matter of prestige for the Congress.
Irani said when she made a decision to contest the Amethi seat, it helped bringing the reality of the parliamentary constituency before the country's people.
