Priyanka Gandhi appointed as Cong GS for UP East

Finally marking the formal entry in politics, former PM Rajiv Gandhi's daughter Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has been appointed as the All India Congress Committee (AICC) General Secretary for Uttar Pradesh (East).

She will take charge starting February. Priyanka has previously not held any key position in the Congress while Priyanka has campaigned for Rahul and Sonia in their Lok Sabha constituencies of Amethi and Rae Bareli.

Congress party has announced it would contest the election alone in Uttar Pradesh as the old party was left out of the alliance by Samajwadi Party (SP) and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) earlier this month.

The general election of the country is expected to be held in April-May.
