Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is an Indian politician who is the daughter of Rajiv Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi. She is currently serving as Trustee of Rajiv Gandhi Foundation and general secretary of the AICC in charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh. She is the sister of Rahul Gandhi and granddaughter of Feroze and Indira Gandhi.

Let's see what will be the impact and benefits of Priyanka Gandhi Rejoining to the Congress Party:

Increases the chances of win of Congress Party - Priyanka Gandhi's has a great personality and also has the qualities of her Grandmother Indira Gandhi that will help her to lead and rule the political world. Her entry in politics can be a catalyst for the rising fortunes of the Congress Party, and also seen as one to strengthen the party's hold in the heartland of the empire state of Uttar Pradesh ahead of the 2019 general election.

Builds women's empowerment - Priyanka Gandhi entry will not only strengthen youth and party's cadre but also motivate 50 percent woman population in politics and also leads a great step striving to bring more women and youth in politics so that it brings change in women's development in every sector.

Priyanka Gandhi entry in Congress Party could shove the spirit of the party workers.

Let's take a look and read out the comments that politicians said for the political launch of Priyanka Gandhi:

On 24th January 2019, Sanjay Raut, a leader of Shiv Sena said that he had expected Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's political launch ever since the Congress Party won three heartland states from the BJP last month.

On the same day, Home Minister Rajnath Singh said: "We don't consider Congress a challenge in Uttar Pradesh. This is an internal matter of Congress." He also refused to take a comparison between Rahul Gandhi and his sister, saying that it would not be justice to measure up somebody who has been in politics and serving the nation for the last 20 years with the one who has just entered in the Congress party.

On 24th January 2019, JD(U) vice-president Prashant Kishor said: "If we think that any person, be it Priyanka Gandhi or anyone, can bring about a major change in one of the earliest parties in the country in a limited period, it won't be fair."  He also added that while Priyanka Gandhi's decision is a "big news" that will sure to work to boost the confidence of Congress workers onward of the Lok Sabha polls, but I still say that it is too early to comment on its likely impact on the electoral contest itself.

On 24th January 2019, Narendra Modi, PM of India, also said that democratic principles constrain the BJP. "Democracy runs in the vessels of the BJP, which is why people of the country feel closer to the party."

Re-entry of Priyanka Gandhi in the Congress party is undoubtedly a boon for the party, as it will be increasing the zeal among the party workers towards winning the most awaited 2019 Elections. Currently, many leaders of other parties have not stated clearly about the news of Priyanka's re-entry. They do think like many others that it would be too early to comment anything on this news.

Let's wait for the elections to see whether the re-entry works in favor of Congress party or not.
