New Delhi : Priyanka Gandhi Vadra (44) is expected to join the Congress poll campaign on December 9 with a mega show in Allahabad and cover no less than 150 public meetings, rallies and roadshows across Uttar Pradesh in the first leg of her tour.
Why from December 9? The date selected by her for the final plunge into politics coincides with the 70th birthday of Sonia Gandhi.
The party sources said her elder brother Rahul Gandhi (46) and Sonia are also expected to be in Allahabad for her formal launch into politics. Sonia had gone to Allahabad a couple of months ago and set up a small team at the Anand Bhawan, the ancestral house of the Nehrus, to plan for Priyanka’s mega show.
