After being touted as a ‘game changer’ in 2019 elections, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s roadshow in Ujjain draws thin crowd

Priyanka Gandhi's roadshow in Ujjain was a failure with few people running behind her speeding car

On Tuesday, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra did a roadshow in Ujjain as part of the election campaign in Madhya Pradesh. And going by the videos of the roadshow circulating on social media, it seems the roadshow was not a success and it drew a very thin crowd. In videos posted in social media, Priyanka Gandhi could be seen hurrying through the streets of Ujjain and a thin crowd running to keep up with the vehicles.

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has been touted as a wild card for the Congress party to take on Modi government, but she doesn’t seem to be helping the party in any apparent way. The people of Ujjain have made it quite clear that merely carrying the name of Gandhi and supposed looks of Indira Gandhi is not enough to grab their interest.

Earlier, the Congress, fearing defeat in Varanasi had decided to field Ajay Rai against PM Modi, after fueling speculations that Priyanka Gandhi would be contesting against the PM. She has also got into trouble with an Animal Rights activist, Gauri Maulekhi, who accused her of “serious violation” of Wildlife Protection Act 1972 and seeking her “immediate arrest”. The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) had also served her a notice for using children in election campaigns.

Such a low turnout during the election campaign is not new for Congress. Earlier this month the Congress president Rahul Gandhi was found to be addressing a gathering of empty chairs during his rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Sitapur. Hardik Patel also had to face a similar kind of embarrassment. The leader of Patidar Andolan Anamat Samiti (PAAS) while addressing his first public meeting in Bhopal also had to witness the sight of a large number of empty chairs.

On Tuesday, Nationalist Congress Party supremo Sharad Pawar’s rally in Maharashtra’s Ulhasnagar, which could be his last attempt to woo voters as India goes to vote for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections from tomorrow, turned out to be a miserable failure as he was seen addressing a half-empty ground.
