Rae Bareli: Wooing voters in her family
pocket borough, Congress` star campaigner Priyanka Gandhi on Wednesday
asked people to elect a Congress government in Uttar Pradesh
for rapid development of the state.
Addressing a series of election meetings in Uchchar
assembly segment, she lashed out at BSP and SP accusing these
parties of doing nothing on the development front.
During the SP rule, "goonda elements had a free hand and
the common people were harassed", Priyanka said.
During the BSP`s regime, central funds for development
were misused, she alleged.
It is time for the people to look for future of their
chidren and vote Congress to power after a gap of 22 years
in the state, Priyanka said.
She reminded the electorate that their MP Sonia Gandhi
had helped in bringing several welfare programmes to their
area like the Rajiv Gandhi Rural Electrificaction scheme.
Roads in rural areas were also constructed, she said
promising more development in the event of Congress forming
its government in the state.
In between the hectic electioneering, Priyanka had lunch
in the field.
