The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has criticised the Congress party after it decided to appoint Priyanka Gandhi as its general secretary.
BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra slammed the Congress and said it is a party controlled by one family.
“Congress is a party being controlled by one family. Priyanka Gandhi has come in as Rahul Gandhi failed to deliver,” said Patra.
She has also been made the in-charge of party’s affairs in eastern Uttar Pradesh. The appointment comes ahead of the Lok Sabha elections 2019.
She will take charge of her new responsibility from the first week of February. The party has also appointed Jyotiraditya Scindia as AICC general secretary for UP West.
