Uttar Pradesh Child Rights Panel issues notice to Priyanka Gandhi for “misleading” comment on Kanpur shelter home

The commission has sought her reply within three days. Action under a relevant section will be taken against her if she did not issue a corrigendum of her post

The Uttar Pradesh Child Rights Panel has issued a notice to Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi seeking a reply within three days for her comment that she made in a Facebook post on the Kanpur shelter home. On 22nd June, there were reports that 57 girls in a state-run shelter home in Kanpur were tested positive for Covid-19, out of which two girls were found pregnant. Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi in a Facebook post lashed out on Uttar Pradesh government, saying it shows the real face of such facilities. She also alleged that facts were being suppressed in the name of investigation.

In her post, Gandhi said that the incident at the shelter home is similar to the case that happened in Muzaffarpur (Bihar) that came into light in 2018. She also equated it to a case that came in light in Deoria district of Uttar Pradesh in 2018.

The commission took suo motu cognizance of the comment and said that the post was “misleading and without any proof.” The commission added that her comment hurts the honour of the girls. In the notice, Vishesh Gupta, chairman Uttar Pradesh State Commission for Protection of Child Rights, said, “The commission has sought her reply within three days. Action under a relevant section will be taken against her if she did not issue a corrigendum of her post.”
