Rae Bareli, Apr 29: Priyanka Gandhi, the daughter of Congress President Sonia Gandhi, who was campaigning for her mother urged the voters to come out in maximum numbers and cast their votes.

Priyanka was campaigning for her mother in Rae Bareli, where polling will be held on Thursday, Apr 30.

Talking to reporters, Priyanka said that the meeting with her brother Rahul Gandhi in Lucknow was not pre-planned and that there is no political angle to their meeting unlike the speculative angle given by certain reporters.

"I had not met my brother for the last ten days. When I heard that he is coming to Lucknow, then I thought since my programme is over, why not I go and meet him. Then in Lucknow, he asked me to come along and I sat in the helicopter and we reached Barabanki. But there is no political angle to it," she said.

Further, she said that the party's prime ministerial candidate is none other than Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

"I think the Congress Party has made it clear that Dr Manmohan Singh will be its prime ministerial candidate, if voted back to power," she added.
