New Delhi: With Congress on the verge of a humiliating defeat, a group of party workers today gathered outside AICC headquarters demanding Priyanka Gandhi's entry into active politics to “rescue” the party.
About two dozen workers led by a party worker Jagdish Sharma shouted slogans in favour of Priyanka outside the party headquarters as the trends showed Congress clocking its worst-ever performance in any Lok Sabha polls.
They waved placards with screaming slogans “Wakt Ki Pukar Priyanka Gandhi”. They were also holding placards with photos of Rahul Gandhi.
Talking to reporters, Sharma said that while Rahul Gandhi has worked hard, the time now demands that Priyanka Gandhi should also work shoulder to shoulder with the party Vice President.
“Had Priyanka Gandhi campaigned earlier, the results would have been different,” Sharma insisted.
