 All India Congress Committee(AICC) general secretary Digvijaya Singh said that the party wants Priyanka Gandhi to enter active politics as she has the potential to emerge as a mass leader.


He further said she has striking resemblance to her grandmother Indira Gandhi, but it remains to be seen if she has the same abilities.

On being asked if Priyanka would campaign beyond Amethi and Rae Bareli in Uttar Pradesh, Singh said “the decision would be hers and the family’s.”


Earlier, Congress workers in UP had informed Prashant Kishor that they want Priyanka Gandhi to lead the election campaign across the state.

As many as 600 out of 622 Congress block chiefs in the state wants that.


The assembly elections in the state are scheduled for 2017.
