Rae Bareli, June 12: UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi along with her daughter and AICC general secretary (Uttar Pradesh east) Priyanka Gandhi Vadra reached here on Wednesday morning.
While Sonia Gandhi will hold a small meeting to thank her voters for giving her a resounding victory by over 1.65 lakh votes for the fifth time from Rae Bareli, Priyanka on the other hand commenced her meeting with the Lok Sabha candidates who lost the elections and the district presidents of 40 Lok Sabha seats of Poorvanchal.
According to sources, both the Congress leaders reached Frusatganj airport by a chartered flight on Wednesday morning and immediately rushed to the Bhue Mau guest house for the meeting. At the airport, Sonia Gandhi was given a rousing welcome by the party leaders.
However, the meeting with the party leaders of Poorvanchal would be a hectic one here after yesterday's meeting of the western UP in New Delhi, chaired by AICC general secretary Jyotriditya Scindia, where the district leaders launched attack on the senior leaders for ignoring the workers and some even charged leaders with collecting money to give Lok Sabha tickets.
He will also meet the district/city presidents, former MPs, legislators and official bearers at the state party headquarters on Friday. (UNI)
