Priyanka Gandhi on Monday held a roadshow in the constituency of her mother and Congress President Sonia Gandhi and claimed that there was no challenge for her party in Rae Bareli and Amethi, the constituency of her brother Rahul Gandhi.

"There is no challenge for Congress in Rae Bareli and Amethi parliamentary constituencies. People here have given us a lot of affection for which we are indebted," said Priyanka during the five-km road show.

During the event, Priyanka marched from the residence of the poll manager of her late grandmother Indira Gandhi (Gaya Prasad Shukla) to Congress office at Tilak Bhavan.

She also visited the house of Nagar Palika chairperson and local SP leader Mohd Iliyas at Qila Bazar and spent three to four minutes there.

Gandhi also went to Sarveshwar Dham Temple and offered flowers to God Hanuman.

During the march, Priyanka's sandal snapped. However, party workers immediately bought a new footwear for her and the leader continued with the march.
