Sonia Gandhi joins daughter Priyanka Gandhi to campaign for UP assembly polls

For the first time in the campaigning for the ongoing UP assembly polls, Congress President Sonia Gandhi and daughter Priyanka Gandhi on Tuesday attended an election meeting together at Raebareli. Sonia Gandhi held all the non-Congress parties like BSP, SP and BJP, that ruled Uttar Pradesh in the past 22 years, responsible for the present pathetic state of affairs in Uttar Pradesh.

“Thank you very much for the warm welcome extended to me. My relation with Raebareli is known to the entire world. I can confidently say that this region has always stood with me and I also have tried my level best to support you from the core of my heart. I have now come to you at a crucial time of elections” she said, starting her address.

“During elections those people, who never bothered about your worries and problems in the past five years, also approach you for your support. I feel sad to see the pathetic state of affairs in Uttar Pradesh. The parties which ruled the state for more than two decades destroyed the entire state. The state of Uttar Pradesh was not like this when Congress was in power. Nobody had imagined this sacred place of legendary Pandit Jawar Lal Nehru, Lal Bahadur Shastri, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi will witness such deteriorated conditions like we see now,” she said.
