Priyanka Gandhi asks people to realize the power of their votesApril 27th, 2009 - 6:04 pm ICT by ANI
Rae Bareli, Apr 27 (ANI): Priyanka Gandhi, the daughter of Congress President Sonia Gandhi, on Monday asked people to realize the power of their votes, saying no one can become a leader or get into the government without the support of the people.
“By your support, development and change take place. It is important for you to understand it during the polls,” Priyanka Gandhi said at an election rally here.
Priyanka Gandhi further said that a leader is a servant of the people and by serving them, the leader does not do any favour.
“You get an opportunity at the time of elections. This is your power. The leader is your servant and does not do any favour by working for you,” she added.
Priyanka also recalled the work done by the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Government for the farmers.
“The UPA Government has done a lot for the farmers, like loan waiver and the NREGA which ensures 100 days of employment. Any government would come and go, but your right of 100 days of employment will remain there,” she added. (ANI)
