LUCKNOW: Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra launched her roadshow here on Monday on her first visit after becoming the General Secretary in charge of East Uttar Pradesh along with her brother and Congress President Rahul Gandhi.

Jyotiraditya Scindia, the Congress General Secretary in charge of western Uttar Pradesh, also accompanied them.

Priyanka Gandhi was welcomed by senior party leaders including Uttar Pradesh Congress unit chief Raj Babbar when she landed at the airport. The state capital has been decked up by Congress supporters.

The Congress office at Mall Avenue has been painted afresh and decorated with hundreds of kilos of marigold and other flowers. The entire route which the motorcade of the Gandhi scion will weave through the city has been plastered with posters, hoardings and banners.

"Aa gayi badlaav ki aandhi, Rahul sung Priyanka Gandhi" (Change is coming, Rahul along with Priyanka Gandhi), was a favourite slogan. Many Congress activists wore caps and T-shirts with Priyanka's picture embossed on them.

She along with Rahul Gandhi and Scindia then boarded an open truck decorated with garlands for the road show. Setting out from the airport, it will go around the city and culminate at the party headquarters.
