Watch: Priyanka Gandhi Vadra Begins UP Roadshow, Brother Rahul By Her Side

New Delhi: The sister of Congress President Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who is being hailed by many as the Congress' big hope in the make-or- break state of Uttar Pradesh ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, finally arrives in Lucknow this morning. Her entry into politics as the party's general secretary in-charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh was announced by Rahul Gandhi, two weeks ago.

Priyanka Gandhi's Lucknow visit is anticipated to be greatly publicized by the Congress Party. From Lucknow airport, all three leaders will proceed to the city's Congress office in a roadshow running well over 30 kilometres through some of the most congested areas of the city - garlanding statues of Mahatma Gandhi and BR Ambedkar along the way. In order to welcome her, Congress leaders and workers will gather at 14 different points on the route, and party workers from neighbouring districts have been called in to ensure good public presence.
