Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s sudden political plunge has created a stir throughout the nation. It all started with Priyanka Gandhi being appointed as Congress Party’s General Secretary for Uttar Pradesh East. The Congress successor has been welcomed with a positive response and warm compliments. But the most special one, undoubtedly, appeared to be the comparison between Priyanka and her grandmother and former Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi, who also happened to be one of the most powerful political figures in the history of India.
With all the comparisons are being made, the Indian National Congress utilised the opportunity as they took to their Instagram and shared an unseen picture of this grandmother-granddaughter duo with the caption, “Strong women raise strong women.” The picture had a little Priyanka playing with Indira as they both smiled. We won’t be surprised if Congress ends up ruling the vote charts after Priyanka’s entry after people labelling her as the Indira Gandhi of 21st century!

All being said, an ally of BJP - Shiv Sena has appreciated Priyanka Gandhi's arrival and even compared her with Indira. Shiv Sena spokesperson, Manisha Kayande feels that Congress will benefit from Priyanka’s entry into politics as she has a good personality, strikes resemblance and possesses qualities of her late grandmother, Indira Gandhi. She said, "The party will benefit from her good personality, her ways of presenting herself and her ability to strike a chord with the voters. She has the qualities of her grandmother. While going out to vote, people will see Indira Gandhi in Priyanka.” We wonder how BJP, who is a staunch competition to Congress, will react to this comment.
