Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has said that she will find out which workers did not work wholeheartedly for the party during the Lok Sabha elections.
Today Priyanka Vadra and her mother Sonia Gandhi were in Raebareli on a thanksgiving visit as Sonia Gandhi had won from the Lok Sabha constituency as the lone Congress MP from Uttar Pradesh in the recently concluded general elections. Addressing the party workers, Priyanka Vadra repeated the party’s stand that the party did so badly in the elections as some party workers didn’t work hard enough.
Priyanka Vadra said she thanks the people of Raebareli from her heart electing Sonia Gandhi. She said that she does not want to give a speech but wants to review and express her feelings. But as she was asked to say something, the truth will sound bitter. She said, “the truth is that, this election has been won by Sonia Gandhi and general public. Truth is that, among you who worked from their hearts, you know them. And those who didn’t work from heart, I will find out.”
Priyanka Vadra’s comments indicate the party leadership’s analysis that the defeat in the elections was the result of some workers not giving their best in the campaigning. The Congress general secretary has also made it clear that the party will find out who didn’t work their best, and perhaps will take punitive actions for the same.
This is not the first time the Gandhi family has blamed the others in the party for the election results. Earlier it was reported that Rahul Gandhi still thinks ‘Chowkidar Chor Hai’ was a good campaign, but it did not work because it was not taken up by other Congress leaders.
