Senior Congress leader Amarinder Singh on Saturday made a strong pitch for Priyanka Gandhi becoming active in politics, saying she and Rahul Gandhi could complement each other much to the benefit of the party.

“We will be very happy if both work together in complementary roles at a time when 70% of India is below 40 years of age,” he told reporters, noting that both are “perceptive and futuristic ” and know what is going on in the world.

The former Punjab chief minister who defeated senior BJP leader Arun Jaitley from Amritsar Lok Sabha seat dismissed as “unnecessary” the attacks on Team Rahul in the wake of the party’s poll debacle.

He said it was for Rahul to decide whether he wanted to become the Leader of the Opposition in the Lok Sabha.
