AMETHI: Priyanka Gandhi today began her tour of Congress strongholds Amethi and Rae Bareli and met with party workers to devise a strategy for the upcoming UP Assembly polls.

Priyanka, who arrived this morning, is holding parleys with workers of her brother Rahul Gandhi's constituency at the Sanjay Gandhi Hospital Guest House here.

She is meeting workers upto the block level and assembly segment wise to devise a strategy for the coming polls, Congress sources said.

Besides party nominees, block and nyay panchayat level workers, youth Congress, Seva Dal, Mahila Congress workers are taking part in the meeting.

Priyanka, 40, who is expected to take over the campaign in these two areas as Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi would be busy electioneering elsewhere, would be finalising the party strategy for the polls in the state, she said.
