During her marathon roadshow covering 130 kms in Amethi, which goes to polls in a week, Priyanka spoke to voters about the ‘relationship of love’ they had with the Gandhis and cautioned them about the intentions of other candidates, who come only during the elections.

She enumerated the development work carried out in the constituency by her family members, including her father and former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi, and even admitted that more needs to be done.

"His politics is not opaque, it is liberal. He looks at all as equals and wants that everyone is benefited and stays united," she said.

She said that the people have supported her family for generations because they have seen them work for the development of the area.

"Many candidates are coming in your area. There are many types of campaigns going on. There is criticism as well that development work has not been undertaken,” said Priyanka.

“I know you understand those who have come with right intentions in front of you. You recognise those who work," she said at a rally here.

Priyanka further said that the candidates of the opposition party only come here because it is the constituency of Rahul Gandhi. She said that neither do they have any love and concern for this area or its people nor do they have any relationship.

"These things I think you understand more than me. You have supported my family for generations and you have seen their work as well. If work was not done, then you would have never supported. This is a relationship of love and I hope that you will make Rahul win," she said.

Drawing parallels between her brother and father Rajiv Gandhi, she said Rahul is a visionary like the late prime minister.
