Posters reading ‘Congress ka Moon, Priyanka is coming soon,” in the Sangam city has again raked up the issue of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s entry into active politics following the Congress’ debacle in the Lok Sabha elections.
The controversial banner has been put up at Subhash Chowk in the civil lines area of the city.
The banner, sans the photo of Rahul Gandhi, has the photos of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Priyanka along with local Congress leaders Haseeb Ahmed and Shirish Chandra Dubey.
Ahmed, who claims himself to be the city president of the party, said here today that Priyanka would certainly take control of the party and revive it. He said that Priyanka deserves a larger role in the party after Rahul Gandhi led the party to a disaster in the general elections. “Priyanka did not run for polls but managed the campaigns of her brother and mother and constructed an aggressive attack on Mr Modi. It was because of her that the party could win the two seats for Rahul and Sonia,” Ahmed claimed.
Earlier, the two leader Ahmed and Dubey who had been suspended from the party for erecting similar hoardings in the city last year but was later withdrawn, has pasted posters a fortnight back saying,” Shah ko agar dena hai maat, Priyanka ko saup do Congress ka haath.”
