Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s entry into politics would make no difference to the BJP’s Lok Sabha poll prospects in Uttar Pradesh, State Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said on Saturday. He also dismissed the SP-BSP alliance as “false alarm.”

“The Congress has made her [Priyanka] its general secretary [in charge of eastern U.P.] this time. It is an internal matter of that party. Earlier too she had campaigned for the Congress. This time also it will make no difference [to the BJP],” he said.

The “fledgling” SP-BSP alliance is already “embroiled in dispute,” he stated.“The new found alliance is already embroiled in dispute. It [alliance] is nothing but a ‘hauaa’ [false alarm],” he said.
