While addressing a rally in Maharajganj, Raebareli (UP) on Friday, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra filled in Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s shoes to support Rahul Gandhi against Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Priyanka Gandhi slammed PM Modi for attacking Rahul. She said, “PM ne kaha mujhe UP ne godh liya aur mein UP ka vikas karoonga. Kya UP ko vikas ke liye kisi ko godh lene ki zarurat hai? (PM Modi claimed that UP has adopted him, but does UP need to adopt an outsider for development?)” She further emphasised that UP’s youngsters are enough for its development, she said, “UP ka har naujawan neta ban sakta hai, aur UP ka vikas kar sakta hai” (Uttar Pradesh’s youngsters are capable enough to develop the state and do not need anyone else’s support). She also said, “Jo aapke liye kaam karna chahta hai usse pehchaniye” (Identify the people who want to work for you).

Earlier today Rahul Gandhi addressed a rally in Fatehpur where he attached on Prime Minister Narendra Modi by saying that in 2014 Narendra Modi said “acche din aayenge”, he promised Shahrukh Khan in DDLJ but after 2.5 we realised that actually it was Gabbar Singh from Sholay. He also said that Narendra Modi does all his work on his own because of which ministers including LK Advani, Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley are left with no work. “Modiji jo bhi karte hain apne aap karte hain, Advaniji ka pura kaam khench liya, Sushmaji, Jaitleyji ke paas koi kaam nahi hai”, he said.
