UP: Priyanka Gandhi Vadra asks Congress workers to prepare for 2022 elections. Has Congress given up on 2019?

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra was appointed as the general secretary of Congress for UP-East by her brother Congress President Rahul Gandhi

Perhaps sensing a defeat for the Congress party in Uttar Pradesh in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, Gandhi Parivar scion Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has now pushed her victory goal to a distant future as she gave a call to her party workers to prepare for the 2022 Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, reported ANI.

Congress General Secretary of Uttar Pradesh East, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday asked Congress workers to start preparing for Uttar Pradesh assembly elections that are scheduled to be held in 2022. Speaking to Congress workers in Amethi, Priyanka Vadra asked her party workers whether they were preparing for polls while also mentioning that the preparations were not for 2019 Lok Sabha elections instead for the one that is scheduled to take place in the year 2022.

Even though Priyanka Gandhi ordered her party workers to prepare for polls in 2022, it is not clear whether she was eyeing the 2022 Uttar Pradesh state elections or according to some speculation across social media that she may also have got confused about the fact that the next Lok Sabha elections are scheduled to be held in 2024. Social media users think Priyanka Gandhi may have wrongly mentioned 2022 as the year of next Lok Sabha elections. There are also speculations on whether Congress has already conceded 2019 sensing defeat in the upcoming 2019 General elections.

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra was appointed as the general secretary of Congress for UP-East by her brother Congress President Rahul Gandhi. Priyanka Gandhi has been making every effort from visiting temples to going on Ganga Yatra with a hope of helping her brother and Congress President Rahul Gandhi in the upcoming general elections. She has been holding rallies and public meetings to energise her party in Uttar Pradesh.

Recently, Priyanka Gandhi put herself in an embarrassing situation after she offered a used garland on the statue of Lal Bahadur Shastri. In a video shared by Union Minister Smriti Irani, Priyanka Gandhi was seen wearing two garlands, who then walked up to the statue of former Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri and offered one of the used garlands to pay respect for Shastri’s statue without even realising that she had insulted Shastri Ji instead of respecting him by offering a used garland on his statue.

Priyanka Gandhi’s husband Robert Vadra is accused of money laundering case and dubious land deal cases. He was recently summoned by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with these cases.  Cases against Robert Vadra has been filed under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) against Skylight Hospitality firm owned by Vadra. The case is in relation to alleged financial irregularities in land deals in Gurgaon, Haryana in 2008. The ED had recently attached Vadra’s properties worth Rs 4.62 crores in the Bikaner land scam case.
