Priyanka Gandhi Vadra slammed Yogi Adityanath over the state of law and order in Uttar Pradesh

News Desk: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Saturday slammed the Yogi Adityanath led BJP government over the state of law and order in Uttar Pradesh. She also criticised the Adityanath led government over violence in local elections.

After the disturbing saree yanking video of a Samajwadi party women worker went viral on social media, on this she said “It was her constitutional right to fight the election. It has been snatched from her. She went to file the nomination. She was attacked. Her saree was yanked. Her son was with her. Nobody stopped those who attacked her. The police officer who tried to stop this was suspended. The administration is silent”

“In such a case of violence, the election is usually cancelled. But the election was still held. Doesn’t she have the right to fight the election? Anybody can come with 10 goons and indulge in violence. Is this our democracy? Do we want this kind of state?” she added.

Hitting out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his praise for Yogi Adityanath, she said “And now Prime Minister is praising the state government even though a large number of districts witnessed violence”

“I have told her that all the women in this country are standing with her. We don’t want a situation where women can’t event contest polls safely” she added.

Later she tweeted that she will write to the State Election Commission on the attacks made on women by BJP workers during the panchayat elections. She tweeted “Those who are trying to disrobe democracy should listen – women will become block heads, MPs, Chief Minister and Prime Minister. They will beat the government shielding those attacking them”
