Priyanka Gandhi yesterday joined her brother Rahul Gandhi during a meeting he was having with senior party leaders, sending a buzz in political circles in India.
Senior leaders Ahmed Patel and Janardan Dwivedi, along with half a dozen other general secretaries, were holding a meeting with Rahul, the party vice-president at his residence here when his sister dropped in.
She was there for around five minutes.
There has been speculation in recent months on whether Priyanka, who has so far confined her politics to campaign for her mother Sonia Gandhi in Raebareli, would take a plunge into politics fulltime.
Her participating in the meeting yesterday fuelled further speculation.
However, party sources playdown the speculation. Party leaders said the meeting lasted around 50 minutes.
