Priyanka Gandhi Vadra: Rahul Gandhi never talks for himself but for all
Gauriganj (Amethi): Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, daughter of Congress President and UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi, who has been campaigning in Amethi, the Lok Sabha constituency of his brother and party vice-president Rahul Gandhi, urged the people to use the power to vote effectively and wisely.
“Voting right is your biggest strength and you must use it effectively, not just for Amethi but to maintain the integrity of our nation, to strengthen our country and to protect our culture” she urged.
“Rahul Gandhi also has the same long term vision in his approaches. He follows his father’s footsteps. All his plans, programmes and policies for Amethi have been to empower people and to ensure welfare. He never talks for himself but for all. Amethi has witnessed tremendous development under Rahul Gandhi as its MP” asserted Priyanka.
“This is election time and several candidates and leaders from other parties are coming to you. They come here, give false promises, level baseless allegations and spread rumours. Someone told me that some of our rivals come in the dark, secretly distributes booklets containing malicious facts against us, and disappear. They are so cowards, that they are afraid of distributing such dirty pamphlets, in open” she said and added “If they want to tell anything to the people, come out open and do it. Why they are scared? This is election time and it is a battle of ideologies. No one prevents anyone from conveying their ideas. Why such secrecy? Directly come to the people and tell what they want to say? Why do they come during night and distributing leaflets containing false facts secretly and vanish suddenly like cowards?”
“The people are wise enough to judge who is sincere and who are not. They can easily distinguish between those are enacting drama and those really work for them. They are knowledgeable to identify who tell lies and who are honest” said Priyanka Gandhi.
“Politics means service. Every leader must realise that their ultimate responsibility is to serve people. They must talk about welfare of people and must tell what their plans for development are. The women here know what empowerment does mean. So you can directly ask your leaders about their plans for women empowerment” underlined the Congress star campaigner.
“Rahul Ji knows very well that it is his responsibility to fulfil the dreams of his father, who laid his life for the nation and for the people of Amethi. Rahul Gandhi also realise the amount of love you had extended to Rajiv Gandhi and so he is well aware that it is his duty to serve you better. Rahul ji always maintains the same love and affection with Amethi people, like his father” she said further.
“So, I will not seek your votes. Just continue to love us. We want nothing else. We are with you in your happy and sorrow, and will remain committed to serve you ever” said Priyanka Gandhi striking a chord with the gathering.
