A day after Rahul Gandhi cancelled his Lalganj rally owing to a change in the rally schedule, Priyanka Gandhi, in charge of electioneering in Rae Bareli and Amethi, postponed her visit to her mother Sonia Gandhi’s constituency Rae Bareli by a day. 

She is now expected to address the rally on Tuesday and continue the campaigning momentum in the run up to April 30, the polling day for Rae Bareli.  As the heat in Rahul’s constituency Amethi rises with Arvind Kejriwal’s jibes on Sonia’s visit to Amethi and the Congress’ prospects in its bastion, the party in Rae Bareli, in spite of the cancellation and postponing of rallies by the Gandhis, remains comfortable and confident. 

“They are members of a family. Though some people are feeling a bit disheartened with the cancellation of Rahulji’s visit and the postponing of Priyankaji’s visit, but the mood is upbeat and the party is in a comfortable situation,” said a voter.  A party worker said, “Priyankaji is expected to be in Rae Bareli on Tuesday.” On Sunday evening, Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal had made a scathing mention to Sonia’s visit to Amethi.

Kejriwal had said: “Soniaji came to address a rally in Amethi after 14 years. Their heart beats are increasing.” The Congress’ supporters in Rae Bareli are looking forward to intense campaigning by Priyanka, whom party workers consider their role model.
