Rae Bareli (UP):-Making her maiden speech during the ongoing UP Assembly polls, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra today attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his “adopted son” remark, asking if the state really needed any leader from outside when it has its own sons.
“PM Narendra Modi had earlier too said Varanasi has adopted me and I am like a son for it and will develop it…I felt, does UP need to adopt anyone from outside,” she said to a cheering crowd here in the Lok Sabha constituency of her mother and Congress President Sonia Gandhi.
“Modiji, does the state need to adopt anyone from outside? Is there no youth here?…You have two such youth in Rahulji and Akhileshji before you who have UP in their hearts and mind,” Priyanka told the gathering at the public meeting which was addressed by her following her brother and Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi.
In her brief but impassioned speech, she said, “No outside leader is required. Every single youth of the state can become a leader…. Every single youth here will work for UP and make the state progress by leaps and bounds. This is the wish of Rahulji and Akhileshji.”
Making an appeal to the voters, she said, “Please ensure the alliance’s victory.” .
