Congress chief Sonia Gandhi's daughter Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will campaign for the party and play a "major role" in the upcoming Uttar Pradesh assembly election, party leaders said on Friday.
"She (Priyanka) is going to play a major role. Let everything be finalised," UP Congress campaign committee chairman Sanjay Singh said.
"It has been decided that she will campaign for the party in the state elections. She has accepted our request. Whenever we will get her schedule, we will use her time accordingly," Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee chief Raj Babbar said.
Babbar added that once the elections schedule will be announced, it will bring more clarity on her plans for campaign in the state.
Earlier, Babbar had said Priyanka's presence will give confidence and energy not only to the party men but also to the people across the state.
He had also mentioned that if Priyanka gives enough time then she could campaign in all the 403 constituencies in Uttar Pradesh.
In the past, Priyanka has not campaigned in elections outside Amethi and Raebareli Lok Sabha constituencies, represented by her brother Rahul Gandhi and mother Sonia Gandhi respectively.
A large section of Congress leaders believes that the party will gain immensely if she campaigns across the state.
