Addressing an election meeting in Sadar Assembly segment
of the constituency from where Akhilesh Singh, the sitting MLA
having a criminal record is seeking re-election, Priyanka said

Singh is a Peace Party candidate this time.
"Think seriously and use your vote judiciously for
development of the area," she said.
"It should be for bringing a new trend in politics and a
leader who is dedicated to you....you have to take an
important decision on February 19 to vote for yourself, your
area as well as state to be rid of backwardness and fear."
"Leave backwardness and fear behind, get rid of it and
move ahead," she said.
In democracy, the real power is in your hands and the
real responsibility is also yours," she said, adding that it
is not the question of election of one MLA but of the future
of the people.
Priyanka is presently camping in her family pocket
borough Rae Bareli for the party.
