Agency News

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Congress Secretary General in-charge of western Uttar Pradesh, took on the NDA government from PM Modi's home turf Gujarat Tuesday in her maiden election address since joining active politics earlier this year.

"Issues which should be raised must comprise as to what is most important for you and how can you move forward. How will youth get jobs, how will women feel safe, what will be done for farmers. These are the issues for elections," she said.

In her address, Priyanka questioned Modi sarkaar on the issue of jobs, women safety, and agrarian crisis blaming the government for spreading hatred in the country.

"Today what is happening to the country is painful. Your vote is a weapon. Congress knows only relevant issues should be raised and not 'fazul ke mudde'. Those who do badi badi baatein; ask them where is Rs 15 lakh? Where is 2 crore jobs?" she said.

"This country is made on the foundations of love, harmony and brotherhood. Today, whatever is happening in the country is very sad. Hatred is being spread across the nation. Our institutions are being trampled, " Priyanka questioned Modi government for spreading hatred in the country.

Priyanka also attracted the crowd for her resemblance with grandmother and former Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

Earlier on Tuesday, Congress Working Committee (CWC), the highest decision making body of the party brainstormed on the upcoming election strategy at the meet.
