New Delhi:

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, newly appointed Congress General Secretary (UP East), held a meeting with Congress president Rahul Gandhi and party MP Jyotiraditya Scindia in New Delhi on Tuesday to chalk-out the party's Uttar Pradesh strategy. Continuing to hold a low profile, Priyanka made a back-door entry into Rahul Gandhi’s residence after visiting a differently abled boy, Ashish, at Aurangzeb Road cluster housing. Ashish's father Subhash Yadav said: "She comes every in two months, spends time with us and asks us about our well-being. She has been helping us in Ashish's treatment for last three-four years." She avoided the media before reaching Rahul's residence.

Priyanka said she will officially attend a meeting called by Rahul Gandhi of party’s all general secretaries on February 7. Scindia, who was recently appointed the Congress in-charge in UP (West), said he will officially take charge at 4pm on Wednesday. 

Earlier in the day, the Congress headquarters saw a new change that has the potential to make or break the Grand Old Party in upcoming Lok Sabha Elections. The party officials were seen putting Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's nameplate outside her office allotted at the party headquarters located at 24, Akbar Road in New Delhi. 

The development comes a day after Priyanka returned to India and met her brother Rahul Gandhi. Sources say that both leaders discussed crucial 'Mission UP' during the key meeting at the Congress president's Tughlaq Road residence. This was the first time that Priyanka met the Congress chief after she was inducted in the Grand Old Party on January 23 and appointed as General Secretary Uttar Pradesh (East).

According to Press Trust of India, the Monday meeting was just a prelude to Priyanka’s packed schedule in coming days. On Thursday, she is set to take part in the Congress meeting in which all AICC general secretaries and in-charges of various states will plan the strategy for the Lok Sabha election due by May.
