New Delhi :

Happy with Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s decision to appoint his younger sister Priyanka Gandhi as the party General Secretary in charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh, party supporters today projected her ‘Goddess Durga’. Several party supporters were seen waving such posters at the Congress office in Lucknow. The poster reads – Priyanka Gandhi Ji is an incarnation of Maa Durga (Maa Durga ka avataar Priyanka Gandhi Ji). 

The supporters have also compared Priyanka with former prime minister Indira Gandhi in the poster. “Indira is Back,” reads the poster. The jubilant Congress workers also shouted slogans hailing Priyanka's entry into politics.

This is not the first time when party workers have projected Priyanka as ‘goddess Durga'. Earlier, Congress supporters had released a poster stating "Woh Indira hai, woh Durga hai, who hai shakti ka avatar (she is Indira, she is Durga, she is the embodiment of power),".

Priyanka, who is known to have had a say in formalising election strategies and candidates' list of the party in previous elections, has been appointed as AICC general secretary and has made in-charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh. She will be taking charge of the new responsibility from the first week of February. With this, speculations are rife that she may contest the upcoming Lok Sabha polls from her mother Sonia Gandhi’s constituency Rae Bareli.

Priyanka's husband Robert Vadra has extended support to her and said that he will be by her side in every phase of the life. "Congratulations P. Always by your side in every phase of your life. Give it your best," he posted on Facebook with a photo of her wife.
