New Delhi : Asserting that Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s formal entry in active politics will have no impact on Lok Sabha polls, BJP’s Manoj Sinha on Thursday said her appointment as Congress general secretary of Uttar Pradesh-East may have generated a buzz in Delhi but it has drawn no response from the region of which she has been made in-charge by her party.
Union minister Manoj Sinha,who is Lok Sabha MP from Ghazipur in eastern UP, said Priyanka’s appointment is an attempt by the Congress to gain some importance in the state as it was left in a “bad shape” after being left out of the SP-BSP alliance.
He also added, “Farm loan waiver is just an eyewash. It has become a joke. Those who didn’t take any loan have been included in lists of farm loan waiver. Had there not been upcoming elections, Congress would have simply said that they never made the announcement.”
“Making fake promises to the people is an old habit of Congress Party. They have never carried out the promise they made under their governance”, he added.
