The roadshow will mark the beginning of innings of Priyanka and Scindia after they were made the in-charge of UP East and West respectively.

“She (Priyanka) believes that there are more experienced people in the party and their experience will benefit both her and Scindia. They will interact with the party workers and leaders and carry out a new narrative unlike the politics of polarisation of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP),” Surjewala added.
Rahul on his last visit to Amethi and Raebareli had said that the Congress will play on “front foot” in the state and that Priyanka and Scindia were being sent to UP with a “larger plan”. “They are not being sent for just two months, they are being sent with a larger plan. Our aim is to have a Congress government in the state in 2022.”
Earlier on Wednesday, both Priyanka and Scindia assumed their charges as General Secretaries at the AICC. Both have been given a same room to share at the party headquarters here in Delhi.
