Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will address a public meeting on Friday in Gwalior, the home constituency of Union minister and former Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia, a party functionary said.
This will be Priyanka Gandhi’s second visit in 40 days to the state, where assembly elections are due by the end of the year.
“Priyankaji will reach Gwalior at 11 am and then proceed to Rani Laxmibai’s memorial, where she will pay homage to the great freedom fighter,” MP Congress media department president KK Mishra told PTI on Thursday.
He told that Priyanka Gandhi will address a public meeting at the fair ground at around 11.30 am.
On 12 June, she launched her party’s campaign in the state by addressing a rally in Jabalpur, where she said that if the Congress came to power in the state, she would implement five schemes, including financial assistance of Rs 1,500 per month to women. assistance, free electricity up to 100 units and restoration of the old pension scheme (OPS).
He accused the Shivraj Singh Chouhan government of being steeped in corruption and failure to provide jobs and also took a jibe at Congress-turned-BJP leader and Union minister Scindia.
In Madhya Pradesh, MLAs loyal to Scindia had quit the Congress and later joined the BJP in March 2020, leading to the fall of the Kamal Nath-led government in 15 months and paving the way for Chouhan’s return to power.
The Scindia dynasty once ruled the erstwhile princely state of Gwalior.
