Election time is like picnic for the Gandhi family: BJP downplays Priyanka’s ‘boat yatra’

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is on a three-day 'Boat Yatra' on the river Ganga from Prayagraj to Varanasi

Hitting out on Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s chaotic Ganga Yatra, Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma said that the election time is like a picnic for the Gandhi family. “Had it been old times, they (Gandhi family) would have been called a ‘Raj gharana’ (royalty). They come during elections, have a picnic, go back and return after five years.” he said.

Adding that the ‘boat yatra’ which she started yesterday from Prayagraj is “only for the votes”, he said that Congress allies had pointed out the flaws and shortcomings in the boat yatra already. After the elections, the Gandhi family heads for Switzerland or Italy, he added.

As part of campaigning for Lok Sabha elections, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra undertook a boat ride on the river Ganga from Prayagraj to Varanasi. She kicked off her election campaign in Uttar Pradesh, more than 50 days after she was officially inducted into the party, by offering prayers at Hanuman temple near the Sangam in Prayagraj which was followed by the three-day boat ride from Prayagraj to Varanasi.

Downplaying Priyanka’s election campaign, Sharma further added that as soon as a new election is announced, a new member of the Gandhi family “emerges and assumes magical leadership”. He said that even though Priyanka has earlier campaigned for Congress in previous elections, Congress had suffered defeats.
