'Scared Priyanka Gandhi will not do politics, sit at home'
Varanasi : Commenting sharply over the continuous demands on why she did not fight Lok Sabha Election 2019 from the Varanasi seat, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said, "it was party's call to not field her from the seat."
"If Priyanka Gandhi gets scared, she will sit at home and not do politics. I am in politics for good and will be there," she said while campaigning in Uttar Pradesh’s Amethi from where Congress President Rahul Gandhi is seeking re-election.
She also explained that there is a lot of work and responsibility on her and if she had been given Varanasi seat then all the focus would had confined to only one seat. "See there is a lot of work… Had I contested from Varanasi I would have been confined just to that one constituency. Every candidate wants me to go campaign for them. I cannot disappoint them," she added.
“I took the advice of all senior leaders of our party and colleagues in UP. They firmly felt that I have a responsibility here of looking after 41 seats. I felt that they (candidates) would be disappointed if I focused on only one place,” Vadra had said when she had been asked about her nomination from Varanasi seat.
The Congress has fielded Ajay Rai from the Varanasi seat opposite Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
