Congress Uttar Pradesh (East) general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Sunday wrote an open letter to the people of Uttar Pradesh ahead of the Lok Sabha election 2019. In the letter, Priyanka Gandhi called herself a soldier of the Congress party and said that she has been entrusted with the responsibility to change the face of state politics with the help of the people.
“There was a standstill in the politics of Uttar Pradesh and because of this, women, children and youths are facing a crisis today. They want to share their plight with us but because of the political gimmicks, they remained absent from the state’s policies,” she said.
Priyanka Gandhi Vadra further said that she is attached to the land of Uttar Pradesh. “I firmly believe that no change can be brought to the state politics before understanding your plight. That is why I am coming to connect with you all,” she said.
“I want to ensure you that after listening to you, we will bring a political change on the foundation of truth,” she said.
