Priyanka Gandhi set for Varanasi rally today
Varanasi: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is all set to address a rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Varanasi on Sunday, where she plans to target the Yogi Adityanath-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in the state over a host of issues, including the rising inflation, farmers’ protests, and fuel rates, according to party functionaries familiar with the matter.
Priyanka Gandhi also aims to bring up the issue of the farmers’ protests, a contention that has recently been magnified due to the violent incident at Lakhimpur Kheri.
Varanasi, an important political center in eastern UP where the Congress enjoyed immense support till three decades ago, is now a BJP bastion. It remains to be seen if the grand old party can dent the saffron fortress ahead of polls.
