Feb 12, 2019 12:52 PM IST India India

Priyanka and Rahul Gandhi led a grand roadshow in Lucknow today - sounding the poll bugle from the coveted state which decides who claims power at the Centre. She has been given charge of Eastern Uttar Pradesh - tasked with boosting the Congress not only in the Lok Sabha elections, but make the party a force to be reckoned with in the state elections in 2022. The BJP - which maintains a strong hold of the state - has dismissed the Priyanka factor - attacking her and the Congress over the probes faced by Robert Vadra - meanwhile - to mount a successful offensive against the BJP - the Congress has said its doors are still open to the SP and the BSP. The question remains - is Priyanka Gandhi truly the Congress X-factor in Uttar Pradesh - can she seal the mahagathbandhan in the state and can she impact U.P politics.
