For the first time after the state bifurcation, Sonia Gandhi has come down to Seema Andhra for the election campaign in Guntur. It was at the juncture when Congress is heading towards a complete zero in the region. But surprisingly Sonia had insisted her leaders to make sure the meeting is successful. People were mobilized in huge numbers and the turn out is the biggest this poll season.

And the irony is that some people in the crowd openly abused Sonia Gandhi and Congress for the bifurcation and clearly stated that they came to the meeting only for money. Sonia Gandhi in her speech said that Seema Andhra is so close to her heart so she got so many packages to the region. She also added that Polavaram could not have been materialized if not for the divided state.
