On Sunday, she released an audio message  where she said: "Hello, this is Priyanka Gandhi Vadra speaking."

"Tomorrow, I am going to Lucknow to meet all of you. I have hope in my heart that together we can begin a new kind of politics. It will be a politics in which all of you will be stakeholders. From my young friends, my sisters and even the weakest person, all their voices will be heard in this kind of politics," she was quoted as saying in Hindi.

Congress' decision to appoint Priyanka as the in-charge came days after the SP and BSP stitched an alliance leaving the country's oldest political party alone to fight the BJP in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.

However, Rahul stated his party will "play on a front foot" in Uttar Pradesh.

In 2014 General Elections, the Congress had managed to win only their bastions, Amethi and Rae Bareli seats.
