Braving rains and chill, Priyanka, with her brother Rahul Gandhi, went door-to-door in almost every village they visited enquiring from the people about their problems and the development work in their areas.

Their first visit together set political circles abuzz with speculation about their formal entry into politics, although both of them did nothing to clear the air.

Everywhere, they asked Congress workers to gear up for Lok Sabha elections. "Work hard so that the Congress can register a massive victory in Uttar Pradesh," Priyanka told those who came to meet them at the Munshiganj guest house, where the siblings stayed during the visit.

Among other things, Priyanka reviewed the work carried out by the Rajiv Gandhi Charitable Trust in Bahadurpur block and met Sripal Chamar, a dalit, who was allegedly beaten by the henchmen of a local BJP legislator recently.

Driving through the dusty road at Jamoria village, she visited the house of Sukhram Yadav, her cook in 10, Janpath Road in Delhi to enquire about his family's well-being.
