Give Congress a majority, Priyanka tells voters

Amethi, Feb 9 (IANS) Calling upon the voters of Uttar Pradesh to give the Congress a majority in the assembly polls so that it does not have to depend on other parties, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra Thursday said it was time people changed the politics of the state for their own benefit.

Addressing a rally here, she said the change will not benefit her or her brother Rahul Gandhi but the people themselves.

‘When will you bring a change? Till what time will you tolerate? Time has come for a change. Change will not benefit Rahul Gandhi or Priyanka Gandhi. It will benefit you. It will bring politics of development,’ said Priyanka.

She urged people to vote for Congress so that the party is able to form a government on its own.

‘There should be a Congress government so that the party does not have to make agreements, it does not have to spread its arms (before other parties),’ Priyanka said, adding that a Congress government in the state will follow programmes of party-led central government.

She was Thursday campaigning for the Congress in Amethi, represented in parliament by Rahul Gandhi.
