Keep her safe, Robert Vadra’s message for Priyanka Gandhi
New Delhi, Feb 11: Robert Vadra has an emotional message for his wife Priyanka Gandhi, who began her campaign for the Lok Sabha elections on Monday. In a Facebook post, he wished her luck, while describing her as a perfect wife and mother.
Enthused by the appointment of new leaders to steer them into the coming Lok Sabha election, Congressmen accorded a grand welcome to the party's general secretary in-charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, and others.
"My Best wishes to you P, on your new journey of working in Uttar Pradesh and serving the people of India. You have been my best friend, a perfect wife and the best mother to our Children. There is a very Vindictive and vicious political atmosphere... But I know, it's her duty to serve the people and Now we hand her to the people of India. Please keep her safe," Vadra wrote in a Facebook post.
Congress workers, led by Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee (UPCC) chief Raj Babbar, made elaborate arrangements to welcome their leaders, including Congress president Rahul Gandhi and in-charge of the state's western region, Jyotiraditya Scindia, who will accompany Priyanka Vadra as she makes her first public appearance in the state after her new assignment.
Hoardings of Congress leaders, including Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Vadra, have been put up along the route they are proposed to take. Banners on the route read, "Waqt Hai Badlav Ka".
Elaborate security arrangements have been made for the visit. Special Protection Group personnel, who provide security to the Gandhis, on Thursday visited the UPCC office, party sources said.
The Congress is expecting the visit to become a virtual launch of its campaign in Uttar Pradesh, ahead of Lok Sabha elections due by May.
Priyanka Vadra will meet leaders and office-bearers from 42 constituencies of Uttar Pradesh (East) during her visit till February 14.
