PRIYANKA GANDHI VADRA IS MOST PRO-ACTIVE NOW IN CONGRESS HIGH COMMAND
Rahil Nora Chopra : The Congress on December 28 celebrated its 136th Foundation Day at its headquarters in Delhi even though party president Sonia Gandhi and former party Chief Rahul Gandhi gave the event a miss. Senior leader A K Antony unfurled the flag at the AICC headquarters in the presence of senior leaders like Ghulam Nabi Azad and party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. There was another scene at the Congress office which grabbed attention. It was Priyanka Gandhi Vadra hobnobbing with party leaders, senior and old, and also with the karyakartas. She dodged the question on Rahul Gandhi’s absence but was aggressive in her attack on the government over the farm laws.This is not the first time that Priyanka Gandhi has stepped in when her brother was away or even when he was engaged in fierce battles with the BJP, whether it was the Rajasthan crisis, where she bought peace thanks to her personal equation with Sachin Pilot, to the Hathras rape case, where she took on the Adityanath government. She also disagreed with those who felt the letter writers should be sidelined. The crisis has been temporarily defused and the rebels came out after an amicable meeting at 10 Janpath, where interestingly, Priyanka Gandhi was present and it seems as she is playing the role of Ahmed Patel in the party.
