On 11 of February a huge rally was conducted by Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi and Jyotiraditya Scindia in the city of Lucknow. The congress team had their best foot forward and worked hard to make it a historic day for all concerned. It was more than a rally as most of the congressman had come from all over Uttar Pradesh for the same. Congress leaders landed at the Amausi airport to mark support to the new comers. Slogans of “it’s time to change” were heard a lot and along.
The rally was a huge success, it started with a specially designed bus for the leaders. The bus had cut outs of Rajiv Gandhi, Indira Gandhi, Nehru and the trio. With 20 stops where congressmen were waiting to great their leaders. Some waited on horses with flags whereas some showered flowers as the procession proceeded. Priyanka Gandhi looked charming and warm in simple attire with her trademark smile. More than 20,000 workers from nearby areas had come to attend the rally.
With the recent blockbuster entry of Priyanka Gandhi, the upcoming elections are going to be pretty interesting to observe and follow. Priyanka comes from a powerful political background and so does Jyotiraditya Scindia as he comes from the family of rulers that once ruled Gwalior.
