On the campiagn trail in her mother & brother's constituency - Priyanka Gandhi has set the record straight - in an exclusive interview to CNN-News18's Pallavi Ghosh - she said Rahul Gandhi is not reluctant to be Prime Minister. In the interview, Priyanka adds that the 2019 battle is a referendum on the unemployment crisis... and that Congress will deliver on all its promises. Rising above the gathbandhan narrative - she says she can't say whether SP-BSP will unite with the Congress - but has taken the BJP head on - accusing BJP candidate Smriti Irani of blocking vikas in Amethi. The Congress & SP-BSP have openly drawn swords in the 2019 fight but Priyanka has made one thing clear - Congress will not play second fiddle - and is aiming for complete dominance in the elections - With 3 phases to go - is Congress out of defence mode?
