Kanpur: Congress leader Rajiv Shukla today said that whether or not Priyanka Gandhi Vadra joins politics is a matter to be solely decided by the Gandhi family, and people should leave the issue to them.  

“Nobody has a right to comment on the issue as the matter relates solely to the Gandhi family,” Shukla told reporters here after attending a meeting of Uttar Pradesh Cricket Association.

Referring to BJP chief Amit Shah's attack on Congress, he said the saffron party is speaking the language of arrogance.  However, without taking name of any party, the Congress leader said that a political party wants to fan the riots in Uttar Pradesh, which will not be allowed by people of the state.

When asked about the rare presence of Sachin Tendulkar and Bollywood actress Rekha in Parliament, he said “we should not do politics over personalities like Sachin and Rekha as when they get the time, they will join Parliament.”

Shukla said that the three international cricket stadiums will be made in Uttar Pradesh. Two of those would be in Varanasi and Kanpur while the third one could come up in either Agra or Ghaziabad.

He said cricket grounds will be developed in cities like Gorakhpur, Moradabad and Allahabad for Ranji matches.
