Will Priyanka Gandhi be the X-factor for Congress in Elections 2019?

BJP Deliberately Delayed Assembly Election in Jammu and Kashmir Congress Leader GM Saroori

India's powerful Nehru-Gandhi dynasty launched a blistering attack on Tuesday on Narendra Modi, as the opposition Congress party began election campaigning with a massive rally in the prime minister's home state. Reiterating his support to the long-standing issue of Women's Reservation Bill, Gandhi told reporters in Chennai, "Not just in Parliament and state legislatures, Congress will reserve 33 per cent of all posts and vacancies for women in central govt, central govt organisations and CPSUs. How many times have you seen the Prime Minister of India like this, being open to any question from anybody?"

Mr Modi, in a blog titled 'When a handful of salt shook an Empire!' to mark the 89th anniversary of Mahatma's Dandhi March, said the Congress's culture is the "anti-thesis" of Gandhi-an thought whereas the BJP led NDA governmnent is "working on Bapu's path and a Jan Shakti that is fulfilling his dream of freeing India from the Congress Culture".

"'I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent' Mahatma Gandhi", she said in another tweet. Can you hate people who teach you things?

"The biggest teacher are the people who attack". While she focussed her address on attacking the government's "unkept promises", the bigger question now is whether she can be the galvanising force the Congress party is seeking ahead of the national polls.

"If they give you hate, and you give them hate, you learn nothing".

Gandhi said the world was moving from being US centric to US-China-Russia centric and India should not lean right or left but should stand straight.

There were lighter moments during the interaction with Gandhi asking the students to address him as Rahul and not as Sir - which was applauded by the students.
