Priyanka Gandhi addressed her first election rally in Rae Bareli constituency on Friday with brother and Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi.
Here's what she said in her maiden speech:
Attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his "adopted son" remark, she asked if the state really needed any leader from outside when it has its own sons.
"Modiji, does the state need to adopt anyone from outside? Is there no youth here?...You have two such youth in Rahulji and Akhileshji before you who have UP in their hearts and mind," Priyanka told the gathering at the public meeting which was addressed by her following her brother and Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi.
In her brief but impassioned speech, she said, "No outside leader is required. Every single youth of the state can become a leader.... Every single youth here will work for UP and make the state progress by leaps and bounds. This is the wish of Rahulji and Akhileshji."
