Priyanka Singh Rawat is a young and firebrand politician of Bharatiya Janta Party (BJP). She is the sitting Member of Parliament from Barabanki Lok Sabha constituency of Uttar Pradesh. Her elevation in the world of politics is nothing short of a dream. Riding on Modi wave, she had defeated Congress heavyweight and the Chairman of SC Commission Mr. P. L. Punia. It should be noted that there has not been any politician from her family and hence this success matters a lot.

Caste of Priyanka Singh Rawat
The surname of Priyanka confuses people about her caste. It seems that she is a Thakur by caste. However, that is not true. She comes from a scheduled caste background.
Priyanka got mired in a controversy soon after the staggering success of Narendra Modi in 2014 Lok Sabha Election. She had appointed her father as MP representative. However, Narendra Modi had made it clear that no MP should give a post to relatives. Priyanka later removed her father to keep off unnecessary controversy.
