Following this development, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Tuesday held daylong meetings with local Congress leaders and scores of party workers at the party office in Lucknow. She advised them to strengthen their respective booths.
Priyanka who reached Lucknow from Jaipur at around 1.30 pm on Tuesday and first met with the party workers from Unnao thereafter she met booth level workers and leaders who came from various other Parliamentary constituencies across the state particularly from eastern Uttar Pradesh.
