LUCKNOW: As Priyanka Gandhi Vadra's cavalcade rolled through the streets of Lucknow, the capital of politically crucial Uttar Pradesh, Congress workers showered rose petals and threw marigold garlands at her, celebrating the much-awaited political debut.

Priyanka Gandhi, accompanied by Congress president Rahul Gandhi and in-charge of the state's western region Jyotiraditya Scindia, waved and smiled.

Immediately after the 25-km journey began, supporters began taking vantage points through the route to click photographs for posterity.

Congress workers had been busy making arrangements for the roadshow since early morning. They were seen distributing food packets, tea and water to passers by.

Patriotic songs were played on loudspeakers, elevating the mood of supporters.

Some posters showed Priyanka Gandhi as Goddess Durga on a lion.

"Maa Durga ka roop behen Priyankaji (Sister Priyanka is Maa Durga's incarnation)," read a poster. Another highlighted her resemblance with her grandmother Indira Gandhi.

Congress workers were seen wearing T-shirts with photographs of Priyanaka Gandhi. Members of "Priyanka Sena," a little-known organisation of her supporters, were also seen during the roadshow.

"With the Priyanka Sena at the Nehru Bhawan, Lucknow it is almost celebration here," tweeted Sushmita Dev, president of All India Mahila Congress. She attacked a photograph of her with members of the outfit.

Congress general secretary Shailendra Tewari customised his car to welcome Priyanka Gandhi. The banner on the vehicle read: " Aagai Priyanka. Baj gaya danka. Brashtachar ki ab lagegi Lanka."
