Gandhinagar: Addressing her first rally here since she took charge as Congress general secretary and in-charge for Eastern Uttar Pradesh, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra attacked the Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday.

In her maiden speech ahead of the general elections, Priyanka accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of attempting to divide the people and playing with their emotions for political gains. She also urged the people to raise important issues plaguing the country and said that one has to think what one wants this election season.

Priyanka said, “You will have to think what exactly is this election. What are you going to choose in this election? You are going to choose your future. Useless issues should not be raised. Issues which should be raised must comprise what is most important for you and how you can move forward. How will youth get jobs, how will women feel safe, what will be done for farmers. These are the issues for elections.”

Hinting towards the polarisation that is being spread by the saffron party, Priyanka went on to add, “This country is made on the foundations of love, harmony and brotherhood. Today whatever is happening in the country is very sad.”

She alleged that PM Modi was destroying the top government institutions of the country and said, “Wherever you see, hatred is being spread. Nothing matters more to us that you and I protect this nation, work for it and move forward together.”

After Priyanka, Congress President Rahul Gandhi also attacked the BJP along the same lines and said that for the first time in history, four Supreme Court judges went to press and said they are not allowed to work. “Generally, people go to SC for justice but in today’s Hindustan, SC judges are going to public & asking for justice,” he added.

Explaining the reason behind holding its party’s meeting in Gujarat, Rahul said, “After years, CWC meeting has taken place in Gujarat. We conducted the meeting here because there’s a fight between two ideologies in the country and in Gujarat you will find both the ideologies.”
