Priyanka Gandhi Vadra makes debut on Twitter

Priyanka Gandhi, 47, scion of India's most prominent political family, made her political debut by holding a well-attended roadshow on Monday, ahead of general elections due by May.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi pulled a surprise last month by appointing his younger sister a party general secretary. Priyanka is a big hope for the party in the make-or-break state of Uttar Pradesh ahead of Lok Sabha polls.

Posters of Priyanka lined the streets of the state capital, Lucknow, and hundreds of Congress supporters, accompanied by drummers, chanted her name as she emerged from the airport with her brother. "Uttar Pradesh is feeling privileged as Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is beginning her active politics from here. we can see hoardings with slogans 'Badlav ki aandhi, Rahul sang Priyanka Gandhi [winds of change, with Priyanka and Rahul Gandhi]'", he said.

This is not the first time that BJP leaders have courted controversy with their remarks on Priyanka Gandhi.

"Everyone knows that when Priyanka Gandhi is in Delhi she wears jeans and top but dons saree and sindoor when she comes to the constituencies".

Congress workers believe the induction of Priyanka, who resembles the charismatic Indira Gandhi, will boost the party's chances in the national elections. If Rahul Gandhi is a failure, Priyanka is also a failure. "The youth of Uttar Pradesh need a roadmap for the future and the state needs change", he said.

"Come, let's build a new future, new politics with me".
