An amusing video has been making rounds on social media wherein the so-called party workers of Indian National Congress can be heard saying that Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh.
The video has allegedy been shot ahead of the visit of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra in Uttar Pradesh wherein a crowd had gathered to welcome the senior Congress leader.
A news anchor can be seen interacting with the supporters in the video. He asks one of the supporters, identified as Jainuddin, whom was he waiting for? In a hurry, the man replies "for Mayawati". However, he quickly corrects himself, when prompted by the nearby people, and replies "Priyanka Gandhi".
The anchor then asks him, "Who is Priyanka Gandhi?" To which the man replied that she is mukhyamantri (Chief Minister) of the state.
The anchor asks similar question to other supporters who too appear confused about the senior congress leader.
One such supporter even went on to state that he was waiting for Maneka Gandhi! The same guy later corrects himself and says he was waiting for 'Premika' Gandhi.
Watch the amusing video here:
Netizens were left amused at the video and concluded that the crowd was hired for the visit of the senior congress leader.
Notably, senior Congress leader and former Union Minister Salman Khurshid had stated earlier that the party will contest the upcoming Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections 2022 under the leadership of party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.
