A day before her maiden visit to Uttar Pradesh as the state's Congress General Secretary, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said that together with the people of the state she hopes to start a "new kind of politics" in which everyone will be a stakeholder.

A beaming Priyanka Gandhi, who has been given charge of the eastern half of the Uttar Pradesh, and Mr Scindia, who is in charge of the western half, and Rahul Gandhi waved at a sea of supporters lining their way from the airport to the Congress headquarters.

Her entry in politics came just weeks before the Lok Sabha polls are scheduled in the country.

Babbar said Vadra will be given an "unprecedented welcome". But I know, it's her duty to serve the people and now we hand her to the people of India. Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is now on Twitter. The couple has two children.

This is the second post by Robert Vadra, who is being questioned by the ED for three consecutive days last week in connection with a probe into allegations of money laundering to purchase assets overseas, in support the AICC general secretary in charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh.


On February 7, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra dropped off her husband at the Enforcement Directorate office in Delhi and also picked him up after his questioning.

"He is my husband, he is my family..."

Scindia, in his message, said: "Tomorrow I am coming to be with you".

Priyanka Gandhi's show of support to her husband had come days after another emotional message from Vadra on her appointment AICC general secretary in-charge of Uttar Pradesh east. "Give it your best", Vadra said in a Facebook post.
