"You have chosen the greatest actor as prime minister. It would have been better if you had made Amitabh Bachchan prime minister, anyhow they did not do anything for you," she said.

Priyanka held a roadshow in Mirzapur to show the strength of the party before campaigning ends for the last leg of the ongoing Lok Sabha polls this evening.

Priyanka was campaigning for Congress leader from the constituency, Lalitesh Pati Tripathi, who was also present during the roadshow.

Perched atop an open vehicle decorated with marigold flowers, Priyanka and Tripathi waved at the cheering crowd amid slogans like 'chowkidaar chor hai'.

The Congress banners adorned the road. Attacking Modi and his policies, Priyanka during her roadshow said, "Youth are unemployed. Farmers are suffering. So far, 12,000 farmers have committed suicide. I believe he is not a leader but an actor."

People jostled to get a glimpse of Priyanka and many showered rose petals on her vehicle as soon as she passed by.

Priyanka was seen waving and smiling to the cheering crowd under the scorching heat.  Congress' Tripathi is fielded against SP-BSP candidate Ram Charita.

Thirteen parliamentary constituencies of the state will go to polls on 19 May in the seventh and last phase of the Lok Sabha elections. The results will be announced on 23 May.
