Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has mostly been silent and out of the political scene post the 2019 Election debacle where Congress was decimated and PM Modi led BJP bettered their 2014 score to bag 303 Lok Sabha seats. She resurfaced on Twitter today to fear monger about the law and order situation in Yogi Adityanath led Uttar Pradesh only to get a fitting response by the official Twitter handle of UP Police.

Sharing a collage of crime news clips from Uttar Pradesh, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra took to Twitter today to claim that in the state of Uttar Pradesh, criminals are roaming freely and doing as they please. One after the others, news of crimes have come to the fore from the state but the BJP government in Uttar Pradesh in unfazed. She questioned the Yogi Adityanath government that whether the UP government has surrendered in front of the criminals.

Not taking kindly to this allegation by the Gandhi family scion, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, the Uttar Pradesh Police too took to Twitter to counter the allegations.
