A day before she begins her river journey from Prayagraj to Varanasi to launch poll campaign, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra targeted BJP government for ‘neglecting’ youth, women, farmers and working class and said she was reaching out to people with the help of Ganga that was a support to people of Uttar Pradesh.

“As a soldier of Congress my responsibility is to join hands with you to change the politics of Uttar Pradesh. The youth, farmers and working class are facing problems and they want to share their pain. In the din of political calculations the voice of youth, women, farmers and workers has disappeared from state’s policies,” said Priyanka, the AICC general secretary for east UP in an open letter to people before the scheduled launch of her poll campaign.

She is embarking on a river journey from march 18 to 20 and will travel from Prayagraj to Varanasi beginning Monday.

Priyanka arrived here this morning to interact with partymen, meet delegations and get feedback about the prevailing political situation.

“I will undertake journey by river route, bus, train and also go on padyatra and reach out to you through all the means. Ganga is a symbol of truth and equality and is an embodiment of ganga-jamuni culture. Ganga does not discriminate among the people. Ganga is a support for people of Uttar Pradesh and I am taking help of Ganga to reach out to you,” said in her letter.

“I am closely attached to this land of UP. I am reaching out to you for a direct dialogue as no political change can begin without listening to you and sharing your pain. I assure that we will bring this change on the foundation of truth and your resolve and move ahead together to solve your problems,” said Priyanka.
