AICC General Secretary and party in-charge of eastern UP Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who was entrusted the task of change the political fortunes of the party in the most populous and politically crucial state of the country, has called herself Congress’ foot soldier.
In an effort to connect herself directly to the people of the state, in a bid to strike a dialogue with the electorate ahead of 2019 Lok Sabha polls, she released an open letter to the people.
“There has been stagnation in politics of Uttar Pradesh owing to which women, youth, labourers and farmers are in distress. They are looking for someone to share their pain and plight but their voice has sunk in the cacophonous arithmetic of cast, community and politics in the state hence they are denied a role in framing the policies for the state,” she wrote in the letter released to media.
Priyanka further said that she had been associated with the land for ages. “I firmly believe that no political change can take place without understanding your plight. That is why I am coming to connect and have a direct dialogue with all of you,” she said.
“I want to assure you that after listening to you, we will together bring about a change in the face of politics based on the foundation of truth and resolve. We will then move together to resolve your issues,” she added.
