Priyanka is a big hope for the party in the make-or-break state of Uttar Pradesh ahead of Lok Sabha polls. "Everyone knows that when Priyanka Gandhi is in Delhi she wears jeans and top but dons saree and sindoor when she comes to the constituencies".

Within hours of making her Twitter debut, the newly appointed general secretary of the Congress, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra garnered over 79K followers surpassing BSP supremo Mayawati who launched her account last week. She was appointed the general secretary in-charge of Uttar Pradesh East.

But a string of BJP defeats in state elections late a year ago and rising discontent over a weak farm economy and lacklustre jobs growth have weakened Modi's position, which an increasingly aggressive Congress is looking to capitalize on.

The Nehru-Gandhi family has had three prime ministers, including Jawaharlal Nehru, who was India's first prime minister and great grandfather of Rahul and Priyanka, followed by their grandmother Indira Gandhi and father Rajiv Gandhi. "We'll bring a government of youth, poor and peasants".

Although Priyanka has helped manage elections for her brother and her mother, former Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, she has never held an official party post until now. "I have hope in my heart that together we will start a new kind of politics, a politics in which all of you will be stakeholders - my young friends, my sisters and even the weakest person, all their voices will be heard", Priyanka Gandhi is heard saying in the audio message shared through the Congress's Shakti App and phone calls to voters. If Rahul Gandhi is a failure, Priyanka is also a failure. It especially needs a breakthrough in Uttar Pradesh where the BJP won 71 of the state's 80 seats in 2014.
