The opposition seems to be in a strong mood to oppose the CAA and NRC being levied by the Modi Government. The new tactic to entice the crowd has been Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra sending out new year greeting cards to lakhs of people in Uttar Pradesh with the Preamble of the Constitution printed on those. Party officials have briefed the media regarding the same.
The greeting cards, bearing the signature of the Congress general secretary, are being sent to intellectuals, writers, poets, journalists and social workers as well as the leaders and office-bearers of her own party.
The sources mention that the state unit of the Congress is helping in this massive task and facilitating the delivery of the greeting cards to remind people of their responsibility towards saving the Constitution.
Priyanka Gandhi, has lately been pro-active in the state, making frequent trips, while holding the position of the Congress national general secretary just before the Lok Sabha polls held in April-May last year.
The Congress party, especially Priyanka Gandhi, has been at the forefront against the Citizenship (Amendment) Act (CAA). She has read out the Preamble of the Constitution at various platforms.
Uttar Pradesh Congress president Ajay Kumar Lallu alleged that the Constitution was being attacked under the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in the country. "This is an effort by Priyankaji to make people aware of the basic ethos of the Constitution," he said.
