Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Congress general secretary for UP (East), campaigned in Assam and canvassed for the party’s Silchar candidate Sushmita Dev. The Gandhi scion and younger sister of Congress president Rahul Gandhi also took part in a road show in Silchar town today (April 14).
Priyanka rode atop a mini truck with Sushmita and AICC general secretary in-charge of Assam Rawat as the convoy traversed through thoroughfares of the town.
Priyanka Gandhi’s road show comes amid a heightened campaign by NEDA chairman and Assam Finance, Health and PWD minister Himanta Biswa Sarma who has been camping in Barak Valley for the past three days and has been addressing a slew of election rallies.
He also took part in two ‘Padyatras’ in Barak Valley — one at Hailakandi on Friday and the second in Silchar yesterday.
