Rae Bareli: Campaigning for her mother Sonia Gandhi in Rae Bareli, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday raised the poll pitch and hit out at the BJP for playing divisive politics.
Speaking at a poll meeting here, Priyanka asked the electorate of this Gandhi family bastion, “You have to decide if you want to vote for a party that divides people or for one that takes everyone along.”
“These elections are about unity and strengthening the identity of India,” she went on to add.
Priyanka also slammed BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi without naming him, saying, “If all the power is concentrated in the hands of one person, is it a good thing? Or should people have power?”
It may be noted that the BJP has concentrated its 2014 Lok Sabha poll campaign around Modi, pitching the Gujarat model of development for the nation.
Taking at dig at both the BJP and the AAP, Priyanka noted that “others talk about eradicating corruption, but it is the Congress that gave you a tool to fight it – RTI.”
“Parties come before you and say they want to wipe out corruption, but they don't say how,” she added.
On the issue of personal attacks, Priyanka said people should rise above such politics.
Stressing that there should be inclusive growth which benefits everyone, the Congress chief's daughter said elections should be fought on the issues and problems faced by the people.
