Bhopal: Reviving memories of late Indira Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra jumped the barricade and met people after a public rally in Madhya Pradesh.

As public cheered “Priyanka didi”, the Congress leader wearing a red cotton saree, climbed the wooden barricade and clasped many outstretched hands and smiled for selfies.
