New Delhi, Jan 26 : Priyanka Gandhi is likely to begin her formal political career after taking a holy dip in the Ganga at the Kumbh Mela on February 4, on the occasion of “Mauni Amavasya” and the second “Shahi Snan”.
It is very significant as Mauni Amavasya is considered highly auspicious to have the Shahi Snan.
She will be accompanied by Congress President and brother Rahul Gandhi, but if they don’t get a chance to take a holy dip on February 4, they will opt for February 10 on the occasion of Basant Panchami and the 3rd ‘Shahi Snan”.
Priyanka Gandhi, who will take charge as the General Secretary for Uttar Pradesh East the same day, will also hold a press conference jointly with Rahul Gandhi in Lucknow.
This is perhaps the first time that both Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi will take a dip on the banks of Sangam.
