Posters against Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra have come up in Rae Bareli that say Priyanka and her mother Sonia Gandhi are seen here only in times of crisis. The Congress general secretary is visiting Rae Bareli, the parliamentary constituency held by UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, on Thursday to meet party workers and leaders.

The posters, spotted near the Congress office Tilak Bhawan on the morning of March 28, carried a photo of the mother-daughter duo. One poster said the mother-daughter duo has never been seen in the city in times of crisis, but they are seen going to temples during election time.

On March 27, some posters were spotted in Amethi carrying a sketch of Priyanka Gandhi and the picture of a leader from the Samajwadi Party student wing. ‘Kya khoob thagti ho, kyun paanch saal baad hi Amethi mein dikhti ho (Why do you fool us and show up in Amethi only after five years)’ one poster said. The poster said she should give an account for the past 60 years. Another poster suggested that she wore saris just to influence voters.
