Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi had received flak from all quarters for backing off from contesting the Varanasi Lok Sabha seat against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, after deliberately creating sensations about her electoral debut. But she seems to remain unfazed.
Speaking to a news channel on May 1, Priyanka laughed at the suggestion that she feared losing against PM Modi. “The day Priyanka Gandhi fears loss, she will lock herself in a room. I have never feared loss,” she asserted.
She also revealed the strategy of her party in Uttar Pradesh: “Either win or cut BJP votes”. She explained how candidate in every seat was selected keeping this formula in mind.
In the meanwhile a video showing her glee at the shouting of “Chowkidar chor hai” by a group of children went viral. The group was also seen slipping into abusive sloganeering about PM Modi.
Hmmm. Why anyone should exploit small children for abusive political rhetoric?
