Priyanka Gandhi, the Congress General Secretary and eastern UP in-charge, on Monday kicked off her three-day Ganga Yatra poll campaign from Prayagraj (formerly known as Allahabad) to PM Modi's constituency Varanasi in steamer boat.
The Congress General Secretary is looking forward to strengthen the party in the State, where BJP has a stronghold.
Gandhi offered her prayers at the Bade Hanuman Mandir in Prayagraj and thereafter reached Triveni Sangam where she officially kicked off her campaign for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.
The campaign has been titled 'Saanchi Baat'. Priyanka in an open letter to the people had written, "The holy Ganga is symbolic for truth and equality. The people of this state depend on the Ganges and I will depend on Ganga too to connect to you."
