Another reaction came from Union Cabinet Minister for Food Processing Industries, Harsimrat Kaur, who accused Congress party of playing eastern UP card to ensure Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi’s seats which belong to eastern UP. “It is a stamp by Congress and Rahul Gandhi on their utter failure.

They were becoming irrelevant; they had to play this eastern UP card to ensure Rahul and Sonia Gandhi’s seats,” said Kaur in her statement, quoted ANI.

The BJP in-charge for UP, JP Nadda, also called the appointment of Priyanka Gandhi as the General Secretary of the Congress party and deployment of her in the eastern UP as Congress’ official declaration of Rahul Gandhi being a failure. “Priyanka Gandhi officially becomes General Secretary of Congress, but everyone knows how this household chores works. It is also the first official declaration from Congress that Rahul ji has failed, he should tell what his view of ‘parivarwadi soch’ (Dynastic Thought) is?,” Nadda reacted to the news, quoted ANI.

Priyanka Gandhi who had been limiting herself only till campaigning for the Congress party in Amethi and Raebareli which belong to her brother, Rahul Gandhi, and mother, Sonia Gandhi, has now been given a bigger task of handling the entire Eastern UP ahead of the 2019 poll. The Union Minister, Ravi Shankar Prasad, however, doesn’t feel the role given to Priyanka is matching her persona. Taking a jibe at the Congress party’s decision to deploy Priyanka Gandhi in the eastern UP and upscaling her position officially in the party, Prasad expressed that the move is not an unusual one and that merits for a higher role. “Priyanka ji has become the General Secretary, my good-luck to her. Since the party is a family concern, these kinds of postings are nothing unusual, except to say with a caveat, why has she been given a limited role of only eastern UP? Perhaps her persona merited a wider role for her,” Prasad was quoted saying by ANI on Wednesday.
