Days after reprimanding Congress workers for not giving their best in the recently concluded Lok Sabha Elections which led to a humiliating defeat of the grand old party in the state, general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has decided to meet party workers three-four times in a week.

According to reports, Priyanka – considered Congress’ last trump card - will hold these meetings at Rahul Gandhi's residence every Tuesday and Thursday between 10 am and 1 pm.

"After the 2019 Lok Sabha election results, Priyanka Gandhi has started meeting party leaders and workers at her residence here," a senior Congress was quoted as saying by IANS.

According to the report, the Congress General Secretary, who is in-charge of Uttar Pradesh East, has met over 150 workers in the past two weeks at her as well as brother and party chief Rahul Gandhi's residence.

Earlier on Wednesday, Priyanka came down heavily on the workers for not working hard to ensure party’s victory in the state.

"I did not want to deliver any speech here but since I have been made to speak, let me speak the truth. The truth is that this election was won with the help of Sonia Gandhi and the people of Raebareli," a visibly upset Priyanka said at a thanksgiving rally after UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi won the election from here.

Priyanka also said that she will find out the name of workers who did not work in favour of the party in the recently concluded General Elections.

"You all know about those who worked religiously and I will find out about those who did not work for the party in the elections," the Congress leader.

Priyanka, who was appointed party General Secretary of eastern Uttar Pradesh on January 23 and given charge of 41 Lok Sabha seats of the state, had campaigned extensively in 26 constituencies during the elections.

However, the Congress lost even Amethi – the home turf of party president Rahul Gandhi.
