Who is Priyanka Gandhi?

Priyanka Gandhi is an Indian politician and daughter of former Prime Minister of India, Rajiv Gandhi and the current leader of the Indian National Congress, Sonia Gandhi. Priyanka since her childhood has been brought and raised up amongst leaders, a legacy of the Nehru-Gandhi clan which she so rightly is a part of. Having said that, it was only natural for Priyanka to take the political route in her life! However, despite belonging to the first political family of the country, Priyanka has not shown any interest in contesting election as a politician actively. But that doesn’t put her out of the country’s political scene either. She believes in serving the people more than bagging a seat for herself. She has more than often quoted that she can and want to do things for people without being in politics. While it is mostly her mother, Sonia Gandhi, and brother, Rahul Gandhi, who have been serving the party, Priyanka’s contribution cannot be overlooked. She may not be the face of the Indian National Congress but she is definitely the pillar behind it. Her role in the party may be an ambiguous undefined one but she definitely contributes to the overall performance of the party. She is an extremely responsible citizen and an excellent organizer. She also plays the role of a chief advisor to her mother in matters of political interest. Her command over language, her confidence, her demeanour and her conviction to relentlessly serve the people of the country has been an inspiration to many women.

Later Life

At the age of 16, Priyanka Gandhi gave her first public speech. Ever since then, she has been a part of numerous political processions, rallies and conferences.

From an early age, she has regularly visited her mother's and brother's constituencies of Rae Bareilly and Amethi where she has dealt with the people directly.

Priyanka Gandhi served as the campaign manager for Sonia Gandhi in the 2004 general election. She also helped supervise her brother Rahul Gandhi’s campaign in the constituency of Amethi.

Following the Congress party’s win in the 2004 elections, Priyanka’s stature in the party grew. Though she did not play any direct role in the party’s electoral win as a candidate or as a campaigner, she was the force behind it. She supported it completely.

In the 2007 Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, when Rahul Gandhi was busy with his statewide campaign, Priyanka concentrated her energy and effort on the ten seats in the Amethi Rae Bareilly region. She spent two weeks trying to suppress considerable infighting within the party workers over seat allocations.

In the 2009 and 2014, general elections too, Priyanka Gandhi campaigned extensively in the constituencies of Amethi and Rae Bareli and helped secure a win for her brother and her mother.
