The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has written to the Election Commission (EC) regarding the video where Congress General Secretary and Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s sister Priyanka Gandhi is seen giggling and laughing as children abused PM Modi.
In its letter, the NCPCR stated that they are in receipt of a complaint which has a video video where children are actively participating in an election campaign. “The children can be seen making derogatory remarks and using abusive languages in the presence of Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi,” stated the letter. The commission mentioned that as per a letter issued dated January 20, 2017, it had asked the EC to “ensure that children are not involved for election purposes and also, had recommended to all national parties to not to use children for distribution of posters/pamphlets, participate in slogan shouting, rallies etc.”
The NCPCR has forwarded the complaint to the EC for necessary action.
A few days back, a video surfaced on social media where Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who chickened out of battling PM Modi in Varanasi, was seen watching in amusement as little kids, coached by Congress workers, were abusing Prime Minister Modi.

The kids, who were seemingly coached by Congress functionaries chanted ‘chowkidar chor hai’ as Priyanka Gandhi watched on in amusement. Further in the video, one can see the children abuse further. The kinds in unison chant, ‘neem ka patta kadvah hai, Modi s**l* bha**wa hai”. Priyanka Gandhi Vadra smiles sheepishly and reluctantly, as a token gesture tells the children that this is a bad slogan and they should focus on the good slogans. After this, the kids go back to chanting ‘chowkidar chor hai’ and ‘Rahul Gandhi zindabad’.
It is rather shocking that while parents at home generally teach children basics of respect for the highest chair of the country, Congress has stopped to the level of using children for their own unsubstantiated lies and propaganda.
