In Priyanka Gandhi's elevation, BJP sees her brother Rahul's failure
BJP's spokesperson Sambit Patra said Priyanka was RaGa's 'crutch' and he took her help as Congress was kept out of mahagathbandhan.
Meanwhile, RaGa said he hasn't sent Priyanka and Jyotiraditya Scindia to UP for just two months.
Priyanka given reins of Eastern UP
Priyanka was made the General Secretary for UP East by Congress. After the stunning announcement, party cadres broke into celebration in different parts of the country.
In Amethi, Congress cadres equated Priyanka to her grandmother, calling her the second Indira Gandhi.
RaGa said she is young and capable while adding that the Congress won't fight on backfoot in UP or elsewhere.
Priyanka and Jyotiraditya will take Congress' ideology forward: RaGa
"I have not sent Priyanka and Jyotiraditya for just two months. I have sent them to take Congress' ideology forward in Uttar Pradesh. Our ideology of standing and fighting for the poor, for the youth, for the farmers," RaGa said.

RaGa needs family since he failed, claims BJP
Quite obviously, BJP didn't leave the golden opportunity to take potshots at Congress' dynasty politics.
"Priyanka, who is from his (Rahul's) family, is like a crutch for him," Patra said and went on to claim Congress has accepted RaGa is incompetent.
About 'difference' between Congress and BJP, Patra said, "Party is the family for the BJP whereas family is the party for Congress."
Why only one family, asks Patra
"All selections are done in only one family. Somewhere Rahul has failed... Who will be the next after Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi, Sonia Gandhi, and Rahul Gandhi? Only one family," Patra told media.
