    Just some coincidence or not perhaps - today morning I passed by a banner of a newly elected Congress MLA in Bangalore with himself thanking the voters and with the trinity of Sonia, Rahul and Priyanka benevolently looking over the man's shoulders in the same poster ! So perhaps Priyanka Vadra is preparing for a political role. Interesting times ahead indeed for the Indian voter !

    Priyanka Gandhi to contest poll against cousin Varun:Sources

    Lucknow, May 20: Preparations for upcoming mega war -- Lok Sabha Elections 2014 have already begun in Congress and BJP. While the latter made headlines after appointing Gujarat CM Narendra Modi's close aide Amit Shah as in-charge of Uttar Pradesh, it is believed that the former too is also ready with a big surprise in store.

    According to Congress sources, senior party leaders have been grooming one of its crucial trump cards -- Priyanka Gandhi for the mega war. If sources are to be believed then the party would announce their decision soon.

    Priyanka may contest from Sultanpur, a constituency from where her cousin and BJP leader Varun Gandhi is all set to contest during the next general election.

    It is believed that Priyanka's sudden activities in micro-blogging site Twitter and social networking site Facebook are the initiatives which she has taken to build a strong platform reaching out to aam-aadmi (common man).

    However, it was not confirmed when the Congress party would announce its decision on Priyanka. The daughter of the Gandhi family had left an impressive note on people's mind during her poll campaigning for her brother Rahul and mother Sonia Gandhi.

    Despite Congress' defeat in Uttar Pradesh during assembly elections in 2011, many were impressed with Priyanka's presence.

    Earlier it was reported that BJP would ask Varun to contest from Sultanpur which is close to Amethi and Rae Bareli, the two constituencies represented by his cousin brother Rahul Gandhi and aunt Sonia Gandhi respectively.

    Fight between Priyanka and Varun would be interesting to see in Sultanpur, a constituency which once had been represented by Varun's father Sanjay Gandhi.

    Very unlikely that this will happen. Even though these two families do not see eye to eye they still won't contest against one another.

    These are just wild rumors. No way are the Gandhi cousins fighting against each other.

    However much both families "love" each other, they will not take on another nehru-gandhi member.

    @parijataka But does priyanka have an twitter account as mentioned in the article???
    Any folks have any idea on this?? If shes on FB/Twitter she would have attacked/DDOSed by people whom congis call as sanghi trolls.
