New Delhi: Amid growing demand in Congress for a ‘larger role’ for her, Priyanka Gandhi today said she will campaign in Rae Bareli and Amethi, the constituencies being represented by her mother Sonia Gandhi and brother Rahul.
Priyanka has been looking after these two constituencies for quite some time now and there have been demands in the recent past from various quarters in the party that she should extend her role beyond the confines of Rae Bareli and Amethi.
“I will be in Amethi and Rae Bareli,” 42-year-old Priyanka, who was accompanied by husband Robert Vadra, said after casting her vote at a polling booth in Lodhi Estate here.
She was responding to a volley of questions about her campaigning.
Party leaders have been maintaining that during every election there is a demand that Priyanka should campaign in maximum number of constituencies but she has so far not heeded to such demands.
Recently, there was a buzz about the possibility of Priyanka taking up a bigger role after she held a meeting with top party leaders at the residence of Rahul here.
However, the party had officially downplayed the meeting.
Later, Congress had indicated that Priyanka would herself decide her future role in the party.
