LUCKNOW: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra arrived here on Friday on a two-day visit to review the party's preparations after a new team was appointed for the 2022 Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls.

The Congress general secretary arrived at the Chowdhury Charan Singh Airport in the morning and was welcomed by senior party leaders.

She also on Friday held a series of meetings to chalk out the strategy for the launching agitational programmes and making the December 14 'Bharat Bachao rally' in New Delhi a successful.

The Congress general secretary, who arrived here on Friday morning on a two-day visit, was busy holding meetings with different committees, frontal organisations, state office-bearers and workers all through the day, party spokesman Rajiv Tyagi said.

She took part in a meeting of the party's strategy and planning committee during which the plan for launching an agitation on problems relating to farmers, unemployment and crime against women was discussed.
