‘Thought no one noticed’: Priyanka Gandhi on starting debut speech with behnon
New Delhi, Mar 14: Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, in her debut election speech in Gujarat, reversed a tradition as she began her address with "behno aur bhaiyon (sisters and brothers)".
Her gesture didn't go unnoticed as her party's lawmaker Sushmita Dev tweeted a video clip of Priyanka Gandhi's speech pointing out Vadra's improvisation.
Dev pointed out how Priyanka Gandhi reversed the order of address from "bhaiyon aur behnon" (brothers and sisters) to "meri behnon aur mere bhaiyon" (my sisters and my brothers).
"The speech of @priyankagandhi ji in Gujarat stood out for many reasons. I loved the fact that in her address she changed the order most people follow by referring to women before men i.e. behnon aur bhaiyon & not the other way around," Dev wrote on Twitter.
Priyanka Gandhi retweeted Dev's post with comment: "...and I thought no one noticed!!".
