Priyanka Gandhi Vadra makes debut on Twitter

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra makes debut on Twitter”

The two general secretaries will interact with party workers at the Congress office for three days starting February 12, while Rahul Gandhi is likely to return the same day.

Priyanka Gandhi has been tasked with reviving the party in UP.

Crowds showered rose petals on the great-granddaughter of India's founding leader Jawaharlal Nehru as she took an open bus tour through Lucknow, capital of the key northern state of Uttar Pradesh.

Priyanka Gandhi, 47, scion of India's most prominent political family, made her political debut by holding a well-attended roadshow on Monday, ahead of general elections due by May.

Priyanka and elder brother Rahul Gandhi, the Congress president, waved at cheering supporters who chanted their names while dancing to drums.

But a string of BJP defeats in state elections late past year and rising discontent over a weak farm economy and lacklustre jobs growth have weakened Modi's position, which an increasingly aggressive Congress is looking to capitalize on.

This is not the first time that BJP leaders have courted controversy with their remarks on Priyanka. The Hindu nationalist BJP calls Priyanka's appointment an extension of Congress's "dynastic politics". "I have hope in my heart that together we will start a new kind of politics, a politics in which all of you will be stakeholders - my young friends, my sisters and even the weakest person, all their voices will be heard". "The youth of Uttar Pradesh need a roadmap for the future and the state needs change".

Since the announcement of Priyanka's entry into politics, India's financial crime-fighting agency Enforcement Directorate has questioned her husband, Robert Vadra, in a case relating to alleged ownership of 1.9 million pounds ($2.45 million) of undisclosed assets overseas.
