Amethi: Counter Mayawati with Priyanka -- this was apparently the suggestion by a Congress activist to Rahul Gandhi after he declared that the party was aiming at forming a government in Uttar Pradesh.

"Agar aap UP mein sarkar banana chahate hai to Priyanka ko age kyon nahi late (if you want to form the government in UP, why don't you bring Priyanka Gandhi forward)," Congress activist Sonu Singh stood up and asked as Rahul concluded his speech during a function at Raiphulwari.

The AICC general secretary evaded the question and said he would discuss it later with him.

Rahul's sister Priyanka, a mother of two, has stayed away from politics restricting herself to campaigning for her brother and mother Congress chief Sonia Gandhi.

Addressing the villagers, Rahul accused Chief Minister Mayawati of stifling central schemes in the state and said that Congress can ensure development only after it comes into power in Uttar Pradesh.
