The new Mrs G has a tough task to do
Priyanka Gandhi, the belle in the Congress party made her political debut as Congress general secretary and roared into Uttar Pradesh with a warm welcome by thousands of people who cheered her. Priyanka, though seemingly bubbly and cheerful, is highly apprehensive of her husband’s involvement in an alleged land scam in Rajasthan’s border town of Bikaner and that she steps into politics at a time when her husband Robert Vadra is being grilled by the Enforcement Directorate.
Such an inopportune time she has chosen to jump on the bandwagon of public politics, and certainly she has to fire on all cylinders to turn the hostile political situation into a friendly political situation.
