Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has been appointed as the Congress General Secretary for Uttar Pradesh (East).
Priyanka’s entry into active politics ahead of general elections is believed to be beneficial for the grand old party. But what other political parties have to say about the Congress’ step will be an interesting thing to know.
APN in its popular show Mudda has chosen this issue for discussion with Anchorperson Anant Tyagi along with BJP leader Rajesh Jha, APN consultant Govind Pant Raju, RLD leader Ajay Pramukh, Congress Spokesperson Anshu Awasthi and SP leader Vinay Kumar Singh.
Anshu Awasthi was the first to speak and said “First of all I would like to congratulate Priyanka Gandhi ji and I highly appreciate the decision taken by Congress President Rahul Gandhi and our party workers are also very happy with the decision.”
Rajesh Jha was the second to speak and said “People of the nation were waiting for this, as it was clear from the Grand old party that it will bring their own family members only, where Rahul Gandhi is party president and now Priyanka Gandhi has been appointed as General Secretary for Uttar Pradesh(East).
He also added “By this decision Congress has proved that the party has been practicing dynasty politics from seventy long years.”
Vinay Kumar Singh said “SP-BSP alliance is going very well in Uttar Pradesh and the entry of Priyanka Gandhi in the state politics will not cause any harm to the Akhilesh Yadav-Mayawati Party.”
Ajay Pramukh said “Priyanka Gandhi was assisting Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi before her entry into active politics and that’s not any issue, what is the problem in this?”
Govind Pant Raju said “The entry of Priyanka Gandhi into active politics ahead of general elections can be a game changer for the grand old party as it will no doubt beneficial for the party and their members as well.’
Anshu Awasthi said “Priyanka Gandhi will handle the political functions in the UP (East) and she will look after the responsibilities given to her. It was very necessary for the party to keep a strong face in the UP as it is a big state areawise and politically as well.”
Vinay Kumar Singh said “The entry of Priyanka Gandhi into UP politics will not cause any harm to the SP-BSP alliance but it will definitely be harmful for the BJP.”
Govind pant Raju said “Congress has its eye on Uttar Pradesh that’s the reason they have put two of its strong leaders; Jyotiraditya Scindia to lead the UP(west) politics and Priyanka Gandhi will look after UP (East). It is clear that the party is expecting something good from the state.”
Vinay Kumar Singh said “Sri Akhilesh Yadav has said that UP will give a new Prime Minister to the nation, without taking any name.”
Rajesh Jha said “The entry of Priyanka Gandhi into active politics is not going to harm BJP but it will be harmful for the SP-BSP alliance.”
Govind Pant Raju said “The entry of Priyanka Gandhi into active politics will affect the SP-BSP alliance and it will also affect the BJP.”
In an overall discussion it has come to our knowledge that the panelists are not ready to agree that the entry of Priyanka Gandhi into active politics will affect their alliance or their party while APN consultant feels that it will affect the SP-BSP alliance and BJP as well.
