There are so many states and so many in-charges whether they belong to BJP or Congress. Do you ask all of them whether they are going to be the CM face? Why don't you ask them? Why are you asking me?"

"Where is the hesitation? In some places, my party decides to declare the CM and in other places, it does not do so. That is how my party's approach. There is no hesitation," she said on being asked about her party's hesitancy in naming her as the CM candidate," she added.

Priyanka also slammed Akhilesh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party and accused them of doing the same kind of politics as the Bharatiya Janata Party.  "The door is closed for BJP but open for other parties. Samajwadi Party and BJP are practicing a similar style of politics because they are benefitting from that kind of politics. We are saying common people should benefit, issues of development should be raised. The parties who go ahead on the basis of communalism and casteism have only an agenda. They benefit each other".
