Bhubaneswar: As Priyanka Gandhi was today inducted into active politics by the All India Congress Committee (AICC) president Rahul Gandhi by appointing her as Congress general secretary in charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh, such a decision has spontaneously been welcomed by the Odisha Congress Pradesh Committee (OPCC) and its leaders.

OPCC working president and former Union Minister Bhakta Charan Das in his reactions said, “Warm welcome to her. The countrymen and the youth mass have found a replica of Indiraji in her.”

“Her tours and campaigns will certainly double the strength of Congress. Thus, the future of Congress is brighter,” he remarked.

Another former Union Minister and veteran Congress leader Kanhu Charan Lenka said, “Even though AICC hadn’t handed over any responsibility to Priyanka Gandhi, she has been working for the Congress organization in Uttar Pradesh. She has been, especially, looking after Sonia Gandhi’s Amethi and Rahul Gandhi’s Raebareli election matters.”

“This development will certainly boost up the success in comparison to last time. If the mega-alliance works well and all fight unitedly against BJP and Modi, there will be a Congress-led government at the Centre,” he remarked.
