New Delhi, Jan 13: Putting an end to all speculations, Congress's Ajay Maken on Monday, Jan 13 revealed what will be Priyanka Gandhi's role in the party during the upcoming general election.

The Lok Sabha election is expected to be held by May 2014 and Congress has not yet declared its prime ministerial candidate. While most of the people think Rahul Gandhi will be declared as its PM nominee but many others have been betting on Priyanka.

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.
