UP Elections 2017: On Friday afternoon, Congress’ Vice President Rahul Gandhi’s sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra addressed an election rally at Uttar Pradesh’s Rae Bareli. Priyanka didn’t shy away from attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi and raked up the ‘outsider’ status once again. Earlier, during his speech, Rahul hit out at Prime Minister Narendra for promising to waive loans of small farmers if BJP is voted to power. Rahul drew a parallel between Modi’s ‘achche din’ promise with ‘Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge’ film. “But after 2.5 years of becoming PM, he became Gabbar Singh of ‘Sholay”, Rahul said.

Here are the 5 key takeaways from her speech:
