More than a month after her debut into active politics as Congress general secretary in-charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh, Priyanka Gandhi is slated to address her first public rally, that too in the BJP bastion Gujarat.
Her brother and party president Rahul Gandhi and mother Sonia Gandhi will also participate in the rally to be held in Gujarat on February 28.
Priyanka Gandhi’s ‘Sankalp Rally’ at Adalaj ahead of the coming Lok Sabha polls is being perceived by Congress leaders as a major morale booster to the party in the state where it has been out of power for almost three decades.
गुजरात की भूमि पर रचेगा इतिहास एक ही मंच पर होंगे सोनियाजी, राहुलजी, प्रियंकाजी और कांग्रेस का शीर्ष नेतृत्व। ऐतिहासिक जन संपर्क रैली में जुड़े।

Gujarat is considered a stronghold of BJP and is also the home state of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The rally would be addressed after a meeting of the Congress Working Committee (CWC) in Ahmedabad which is likely to pass a resolution against the central government on various issues, a Congress leader said.
Priyanka Gandhi would be participating in the CWC meeting for the first time in which Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi will also be present.
Preparations for the rally are in full swing and posters in Gujarati have been put up across the state.
