Congress using Hathras incident to attack Yogi Government in UP
Completely ignoring the innumerable number of cases of rape being reported in the Congress ruled states, the Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has been launching a no-holds-barred attack against the Yogi government in Uttar Pradesh over the death of the Hathras gang-rape victim, ever since the unfortunate incident has come to the fore.
The Congress, led by Priyanka, who has begun efforts to regain lost ground ahead of the 2022 state assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh, on Wednesday held aggressive protests all over the state, pressing for the resignation of the CM Yogi Adityanath. Calling it a “jungle raj” Priyanka declared, “this was a time for accountability from the chief minister”.
To further her attack on the UP government, the Gandhi scion had today shared a video claiming that the family of the victim is not satisfied by the investigation being conducted by the UP Police in the case. But it appeared that someone from the background was prodding the victim’s father to say certain things on the camera.
