Programme not finalised yet but Priyanka likely to hold road shows in Dehradun & Nainital.
To boost the prospects of the Congress candidates in Uttarakhand, the national general secretary and in- charge Congress in Eastern Uttar Pradesh, Priyanka Gandhi is expected to hit the campaign trail on April 7. Though the programme of Priyanka is not confirmed yet, it is learnt that she can hold road shows in Dehradun and Nainital. The Vice President of the state Congress, Surya Kant Dhasmana said Congress president Rahul Gandhi would hold rallies at three places in Uttarakhand on April 6. “After the mega success of Congress president’s rally in Dehradun on March 16, demand to hold his rallies came from different parts of the state. Rahul Gandhiji would address first rally on April 6 in Srinagar at 12 noon then we would address a public meeting in Almora at 2 pm while at 4 pm he would in Haridwar. The programme of the Priyankaji is not final yet but she would be in Uttarakhand on April 7,’’ he said. Like in other parts of the country the demand of Priyanka Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi is very high among the Congress party candidates in Uttarakhand also. It is learnt that the All India Congress Committee ( AICC) General Secretary Harish Rawat is working hard to bring Priyanka for campaigning in Uttarakhand. After successful rally of Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Rudrapur in Udham Singh Nagar district on March 28, Rawat, who is pitted in a close contest with the state president of BJP, Ajay Bhatt in Nainital- Udham Singh Nagar parliamentary constituency, wants a rally or road show of Priyanka Gandhi to negate the effect of the Prime Minister’s rally. Similarly the Pradesh Congress President Pritam Singh also wants that Priyanka should hold road show in his support in the urban areas of Dehradun. The Congress strategists are of the view that since BJP is on stronger wicket in Dehradun city, the road show of Priyanka could turn the tide in favour of Singh.
