The Gandhi family has been a huge part of Indian polity. Every member of the family at some point in time or another has become a member of India’s grand old party – Indian National Congress. On January 23, 2o19, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra was appointed general secretary of the Congress party in charge of Uttar Pradesh (East) two months before the upcoming 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
In the past, she has been active in supporting her brother and mother in their political journeys. But for the first time ever, she has made a formal entry into Indian politics.
As expected, she has been given her own office in the Delhi headquarters of the INC. What is interesting is that this is the very office that Rahul used back when he was the General Secretary (GS). And next to this was Sonia’s room, which currently belongs to Rahul. Well, they sure know how to keep the offices in the family.

Hearing about the news of this hierarchical change in the Congress headquarters, Twitterati came out with funny reactions. Many began trolling the Congress and Gandhi family for the move. While many others slammed some media houses for making a big deal out of small news.
Check out the reaction tweets below:
You know, my mother used to sit here, now I sit here, and my sister sits where I used to sit. So you can make out how democracy is in danger in India these days, but our hierarchy is very democratic. @Nidhi @RahulGandhi @BDUTT @sardesairajdeep #PriyankaGandhiVadra
