By A Staff Reporter- Kerala NCP-Sharadchandra Pawar President PC Chacko shared his views on Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's decision to contest from Wayanad. "We have nothing to comment on it...Priyanka has made a commitment in Wayanad that her brother will look after the constituency. Indirectly, keeping up her promise might be the reason Priyanka decided to contest from Wayanad," said Chacko.

He added, "To my knowledge, Priyanka was not interested in contesting elections. But she is now contesting to keep the promise Rahul made and that it is a safe seat for her to come to Parliament. Priyanka Gandhi or Sonia Gandhi or Rahul Gandhi should show the courage to contest from UP. Only then they can further strengthen the Congress."
