In a move that reminded people of former PM Indira Gandhi, newly appointed general secretary of Congress, Priyanka Gandhi visited slum dwellers at New Delhi’s Aurangzeb Road on Tuesday.

In a move that reminded people of her grandmother and former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, newly appointed general secretary of the Congress party, Priyanka Gandhi visited slum dwellers at New Delhi’s Aurangzeb Road on Tuesday.

It was her first public appearance after being inducted as General Secretary for Uttar Pradesh (East) last month.

Analysts believe by visiting slum dwellers, Priyanka has sent out a message that her focus is on the common man.

As per reports, Priyanka was en route to meet her brother Rahul Gandhi at his residence which is located next to the Aurangzeb Road cluster, but along the way, she met several slum dwellers, claimed a news channel.

She met a differently-abled boy Ashish, his family and enquired about his health, reported the news agency ANI.

“She comes every two months, spends time with us and asks us about our well-being. She has been helping us in Ashish’s treatment for last three-four years,” Ashish’s father reportedly told ANI.

Priyanka is expected to attend a meeting of AICC General Secretaries and the state in-charges in Delhi on February 7.

The meeting has been called by Rahul Gandhi to chalk-out a strategy for the Lok Sabha-2019 elections.

Another meeting the heads of the state units, Rahul Gandhi will meet Congress legislative party leaders on February 9.
