Priyanka blasts Yogi and Rawat gov­ern­ments

The New Indian Express - - INDIA -

A day ahead of her Luc­know visit, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra slammed the UP and Ut­tarak­hand gov­ern­ments for shield­ing those in­volved in the il­licit liquor trade. “Sad and stunned by the deaths... in Ut­tarak­hand and UP due to il­licit liquor. This is con­demnable. It couldn’t have been imag­ined that the trade of il­licit liquor flour­ished at such a large scale in the two states,” Priyanka said in a state­ment. She said the state gov­ern­ments must take ac­tion against the guilty. Both states are ruled by the BJP. Priyanka, who was re­cently made AICC in charge of UP East, is set for a mega road­show along with her brother and party chief Rahul Gandhi and AICC in charge for UP west Jy­oti­ra­ditya Scin­dia in Luc­know on Mon­day. Both Priyanka and Scin­dia made an ap­peal to vot­ers to sup­port the Congress, which they said was try­ing to bring a set of fresh ideas to state pol­i­tics marred by caste and re­li­gious is­sues. Af­ter the Mon­day show, Priyanka will re­main in Luc­know and hold con­sul­ta­tions with var­i­ous party lead­ers to work out a poll cam­paign.
