Lucknow: Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday conducted a road show with sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who officially entered politics last month. Addressing a gathering, Rahul Gandhi reiterated his stand on Prime Minister Narendra Modi as “chowkidar chor hai” and said the party would not sit idle until a government based on Congress ideology is formed in Uttar Pradesh.

Huge crowd gathered to see Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi as they embarked on a roadshow, which also flagged off Priyanka’s electoral campaign as the General Secretary of eastern Uttar Pradesh.

Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee (UPCC) president Raj Babbar and General secretary for Uttar Pradesh West Jyotiraditya Scindia were also present in the road show.

As the roadshow halted for a while, Rahul took the microphone and said “chokidar chor hai” and the crowd repeated the same chant.

Attacking the Prime Minister, Rahul said: “The country’s ‘chowkidar’ looted the people of Uttar Pradesh, the Air Force and others in the country. Chowkidar chor hai!”

He added, “Uttar Pradesh is the heart of the country. I have appointed Priyanka and (Jyotiraditya) Scindia as UP general secretaries. Their aim is Lok Sabha but also to form the Opposition in Vidhan Sabha. I have told them to fight against the injustice that UP has suffered”.

“We’ll play on front-foot. Scindia ji, Priyanka ji and I won’t rest until a government of the Congress’s ideology is formed in the state”, Rahul emphasised.

Lashing out at the Prime Minister, Rahul alleged: “PM Modi did parallel negotiations on Rafale”.
