Priyanka said she will officially attend a meeting called by Rahul Gandhi of partyâ€™s all general secretaries on February 7.Â Scindia, who was recently appointed the Congress in-charge in UP (West), said he willÂ officially take charge at 4pm on Wednesday.Â
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.Â
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 toÂ Press Trust of India, the Monday meeting was just a prelude to Priyankaâ€™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.
