Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has taken a dig at Congress General secretary for UP East Priyanka Gandhi for her behaviour when children were being encouraged to abuse Prime Minister Modi.
Recently a video of Priyanka Gandhi had gone viral in which she was seen cheering and giggling when a bunch of children were made to make derogatory remarks and shout abusive slogans against Prime Minister Modi.

Yogi Adityanath slammed Gandhi for teaching abuses to innocent children. He said that she should instead teach such abuses in Italy. “Congress has failed, Shehzada (Rahul Gandhi) also failed so they brought in their Shehzadi (Priyanka Gandhi). She was teaching abuses to innocent children in Amethi, please go and teach these abuses in Italy”, said the Chief Minister.
The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) had written to the Election Commission (EC) regarding the video of Priyanka Gandhi and had requested to ensure that children are not involved for election purposes. Later, she was served a notice by the NCPCR regarding the video.
Priyanka’s behaviour at the incident had resulted in widespread condemnation. Union minister Smriti Irani had stated that Priyanka should know that children cannot be used for political activities. She had also added that cultured families should keep their children away from Priyanka.
