Priyanka Gandhi will monitor the Congress's campaigns across India
However, Maken said that Priyanka will campaign only in Amethi and Rae Bareli, the two constituencies in Uttar Pradesh represented by Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi respectively.
Congress sources, meanwhile, also said that Priyanka will monitor the Congress's campaigns across India. She may become the chief of Congress election campaign ahead of the elections.
Speculations over Priyanka's big role in Congress surfaced following her meeting with Congress senior leaders in the national capital. Critics claimed that Priyanka should follow the footsteps of her grandmother and mother -- Indira Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi. Both Indira and Sonia had rescued Congress during its crisis.
Congress under its vice president Rahul Gandhi's guidance have been witnessing defeat ever since assembly elections in Bihar in 2010. Later it could not impress aam aadmi during Uttar Pradesh in 2012. Later it lost power in Delhi, Rajasthan. It could not even win elections in Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand.
