Nothing new in Priyanka meeting senior party leaders: Congress

07priyankaAgencies, New Delhi
Even as Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s  daughter and party vice-president Rahul Gandhi’s sister Priyanka  Vadra today created a buzz in political circles when she met  senior Congress leaders for a strategy meeting, the party said  there was nothing new in Priyanka meeting party leaders.

‘’Priyanka is an integral part of the Congress. So what’s surprising about their meeting with senior party leaders,’’ AICC General Secretary Janardhan Dwivedi told reporters here when asked about Priyanka’s meeting with senior party leaders at Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi’s residence.

Sources said that at the meeting held this afternoon, Ms Vadra  discussed with senior leaders Ahmed Patel, Janardhan Dwivedi, Jairam Ramesh, Madhusudan Mistry and Ajay Maken, the party’s strategy for the coming Lok Sabha polls.

Mr Dwivedi said there was nothing unusual about the meeting as Priyanka is an active member of the party.

‘’Priyanka is an active member of an important political family. Even though she is not in active politics, she is an active member of the party,’’ he asserted.

‘’Priyanka has political views and meets workers. So, if she meets party leaders, what’s new,’’ Mr Dwivedi added.

Though initially, there were reports of Mr Gandhi also attending the meeting, sources said he was not present at the deliberations.
