NEW DELHI: Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia challenged opposition by sharing a picture of Congress chief Rahul Gandhi, his sister Priyanka and himself. He Teeted the photographic equivalent of the archetypical slow-motion shot of protagonists making an entrance in movies, as he shared pictures of them.
He shared the picture and captioned it as “Aa dekhen zara, kisme kitna hai dum / jam ke rakhna kadam mere sathiya (Come on, let’s see who has more courage / Keep a firm foot forward, my companion – a song from the 1981 Hindi movie Rocky) The picture was from the roadshow in Lucknow by Mr Scindia along with Congress chief Rahul Gandhi and his sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.
Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra arrived at the Lucknow airport Monday afternoon to an emphatic reception by party leaders and workers. Priyanka Gandhi has been given charge of the eastern half of the Uttar Pradesh, and Mr Scindia, who is in charge of the western half, and Rahul Gandhi waved at a sea of supporters lining their way from the airport to the headquarters of the party.
Priyanka is seen by many as the Congress’s big hope in Uttar Pradesh, the state which has the highest number of seats in parliament and is considered the route to power at the centre.
