Uttar Pradesh: Priyanka Gandhi slams Yogi Adityanath over contemplation of action against policewomen who took selfies with her

News Desk: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday said that Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is so annoyed with the policewomen who posed selfies with her that he is contemplating action against them, adding that the CM can punish her instead of the women cops.

“I am hearing that Yogi ji is so hurt with this picture that he wants to take action against these policewomen. If it is a crime to take pictures with me, then I should the one who is punished for it. It does not suit the government to spoil the career of these hardworking and loyal policewomen” she tweeted in Hindi.

On her way to Agra to meet the family of a person who died in police custody, Gandhi paused for some time as she took selfies with a group of women policemen. She was stopped in Lucknow by the Uttar Pradesh Police from going to Agra, but was later allowed to proceed.

Arun, who was accused of stealing Rs 25 lakh from Jagdishpura police station in Agra, died in police custody after his health deteriorated during interrogation. Gandhi met Arun’s family on Wednesday night and said the law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh is “frightening”.
