Ahmedabad, Dec 5 (UNI) A 13-year-old girl from Etah district of Uttar Pradesh will become the youngest campaigner in Gujarat as she will start campaigning for the century-old Congress party, ahead of the state Assembly elections, from tomorrow.
GPCC today presented Sadhana Bharati before reporters on her arrival from Delhi. She was accompanied by her father Rajesh Rajput.
She gave a fiery speech against the ruling BJP in the state.
''This is the first time that Sadhana is entering Gujarat for campaigning and she will deliver her first campaign speech at a public meeting in Surat city tomorrow. She will be in Gujarat for some more days, campaigning for the Congress. For the campaigning, the party has prepared a detailed programme, to be addressed by her, in different parts of the state,'' GPCC sources said.
The minor girl told the reporters that she started reciting the Gayatri mantra at the tender age of two-and-a-half years. She had polished her oratory skills by addressing over 1,000 election meetings.
Sadhana said though she had no plans to join the political party in future, she started campaigning for the Congress because she likes the Congress ideology and leadership of Sonia Gandhi.
Ms Gandhi and other Congress leaders were attracted to her fiery speeches and made her one of the star campaigners for the party. The small wonder from Etah district of Uttar Pradesh gives a whole lecture on secularism at the Congress meetings -- extempore and flawless -- making a big splash among the Congress-loyalists and local people, sources added.
