Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will campaign for her party’s candidate and former Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit in Delhi on May 5.
Senior Congress leaders told media, “Priyanka Gandhi will hold a road show in North East Delhi for Sheila Dikshit on May 5.” Dikshit is pitted against AAP’s Dilip Pandey and outgoing BJP MP Manoj Tiwari in a triangular contest.
This will be Priyanka Gandhi’s first campaign in Delhi, after she was appointed the Congress General Secretary on January 23.
The Congress leader said that the party was also mulling campaigning by Priyanka Gandhi’s in the city between May 9 to 10 to counter Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s rally for the BJP candidates at the Ramleela grounds on May 8.
The party leader said that the decision to bring her to Delhi was taken after a positive response from her campaign in Uttar Pradesh.
He said that her road show will prove to be a game changer for the party, in Delhi, especially in North East Delhi, where Tiwari is facing anti-incumbency due to the sealing drive.
