priyanka-vadra-sonia-gandhiNEW DELHI : Priyanka Gandhi’s entry into politics is a sign that that her brother Rahul Gandhi, the Congress president, had failed and the party is desperate, the ruling BJP said on Wednesday. “As the Congress is not being accepted as part of mahagathbandhan in states, a crutch is being searched in the family. Priyanka, who is from his (Rahul’s) family, is like a crutch for him,” BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said.
After Priyanka Gandhi was appointed as Congress’ General Secretary for Eastern Uttar Pradesh, BJP national spokesperson Sambit Patra on Wednesday downplayed the development, terming it as “expected”. Patra accused the Congress of promoting dynastic politics, saying that they consider the Gandhi family as the party. “This was expected. To promote dynasty is what Congress is all about. They consider family as the party while BJP considers party as the family. Congress has accepted that Rahul Gandhi Ji has failed,” said Patra.
Echoing similar views, Union Minister and BJP’s Uttar Pradesh in-charge JP Nadda, took a jibe at the Congress, claiming that by this move the Congress has in a way officially declared that its president Rahul Gandhi has “failed”. Nadda suggested that Rahul should express his views on dynastic politics.

“Priyanka Gandhi officially becomes General Secretary of Congress, but everyone knows how this household company works. It is also the first official declaration from Congress that Rahul Ji has failed, he should tell what is his view of ‘Parivarwadi soch’ (dynastic thought)?” he said.
With Priyanka’s formal entry into active politics, the Congress informed that she will be taking charge of her responsibility with effect from February first week. During earlier elections, Priyanka had kept herself limited to campaigning for Rahul and Sonia in only Amethi and Raebareli parliamentary constituencies.
Incidentally, both Amethi and Raebareli are also part of Uttar Pradesh East, the region of which Priyanka has been given charge as General Secretary. Apart from Priyanka, Congress has also appointed KC Venugopal as AICC General Secretary (Organisation), Jyotiraditya Scindia as AICC General Secretary for Uttar Pradesh West and Ghulam Nabi Azad as AICC General Secretary for Haryana.
“The Congress has publicly announced that Rahul Gandhi has failed and needs crutches from within the family.” Mr Patra said the Congress could not look beyond the Gandhi family and this had been demonstrated once again. “Party is the family for the BJP whereas family is the party for Congress. All selections are done in only one family. Somewhere Rahul has failed… Who will be the next after Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi? Only one family.

The new India is asking this question,” he said.Lok Sabha elections 2019: Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has been appointed eastern Uttar Pradesh in-charge by the Congress led by her brother Rahul Gandhi
