Can Priyanka Gandhi Vadra gain votes for Congress?

Hyderabad sources reported that the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) said Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will draw crowds but not win votes for the Congress as today's electorate back parties which deliver and are not swayed by "charisma”. Spokesperson for the ruling party in Telangana, Abid Rasool Khan, said "Those days have gone when people with super-charisma come and sway the voters because voters today are educated, especially the youth who are making an impact and voters are towards parties which promise and deliver".

He claimed the "classic case" in this context is the TRS which swept the recent Assembly and Panchayat polls in the state because of good governance and delivery on promises, and there was no "charisma". He added "Priyanka's entry or entry in comparison with any film star or celebrity is only to draw the crowd, but they will not transform into votes because voters have decided they wanted parties which will deliver and keep up promises".

Moreover as for the perception in some quarters that Priyanka may "overshadow" her brother and Congress President Rahul Gandhi, he said "Anybody who does not perform will be overshadowed." He said "Rahul Gandhi has definitely not performed as a national leader, and he has not been assertive, he is not seen to take decisions", the Congress would not have won Assembly polls in Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh last year if there was a "third alternative."
