"Over 100 people have died in the tragedy. The whole country is looking at the Madhya Pradesh government which could not even provide police arrangement at the place. It (news about Priyanka Gandhi) is attempt by some people to divert attention from the issue and to hide MP government's failure," Congress general secretary Ajay Maken said.

"Priyankaji campaigns in only Amethi and Rae Bareli," he said, referring to the Lok Sabha constituencies held by Congress president Sonia Gandhi and party vice-president Rahul Gandhi.

Meanwhile, asked to comment on Priyanka Gandhi's possibility of campaigning against Narendra Modi and in other parts of the country, Telecom Minister Kapil Sibal said,
"Everybody in Congress must campaign to ensure that UPA II's positive things are told to people."
