Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s arrest in Uttar Pradesh won’t stop “the non-violent protest for truth”, her brother Rahul Gandhi said today in a tweet, calling her “fearless” and a “true Congressi”. This is the third consecutive day that the opposition target the BJP government in UP and at the centre over the violence in Lakhimpur district. This is about 440 km from Delhi, wrong doers run over as many as eight people – including four farmers . Union Minister of State for Home Ajay Kumar Mishra’s son Ashish Mishra is the only person in the murder case.
“Jise hirasat me rakha hai, woh darti nahi – sacchi Congressi hai. Haar nahi manegi. Satyagrah rukega nahi. (Cops have arrested her, she doesn’t fear (anything) – she is a true Congressi. She won’t give up),” Mr Gandhi, 51, tweeted in Hindi.
Priyanka Gandhi, 49, said on Monday cops arrested her when she was on her way to the UP district. She repeated that she was “being held illegally”. She further said, yet again, that police arrested while they took no action against the Union Minister’s son, who is an accused.
On Monday, several opposition leaders, including Akhilesh Yadav, went to detention amid widespread protests against what happened in Lakhimpur.
Haryana, Punjab and Delhi also saw demonstrations by farmers as they demanded action against the Minister’s son.
