Sultanpur: Venturing out of twin
constituencies of her mother Sonia Gandhi and brother Rahul
for the first time, Congress` star campaigner Priyanka Gandhi
on Sunday carried out a roadshow in Sultanpur to woo voters.

Priyanka started her roadshow from Lambhua along with
Rahul, where a meeting was addressed by the Congress general
secretary.

Rahul told the gathering that he was waging a struggle to
change UP and was asking for only five years.

Appealing to youths, he said that the aim was not to
achieve power, but Congress` agenda was to give youths
employment in UP itself and rid its people of poverty and
anarchy.

After Lambhua meeting, Priyanka continued with her
roadshow at more than 12 places, covering a distance of more
than 60 kilometres, party sources said.

Addressing people at Barausa, the 40-year-old daughter of
Congress chief said that Uttar Pradesh did not see development
as there was no Congress government for the last 22 years.

"Elect Congress candidates as MLAs, form the government
then only development of the state would take place," Priyanka
said.

Priyanka has been, till now, leading the Congress campaign
in Amethi and Rae Bareli, Lok Sabha constituencies of Rahul
and Sonia.
