Amidst a high voltage drama, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has achieved her objective of meeting the victims of Sonbhadra firing. She wasn’t allowed to meet the victims yesterday and was detained by the UP police official.
The police stopped her yesterday in Narayanpur, and she was made to stay in the Chunar Guest House. She had to spend a night at a guest house.
The senior officers even tried to send her back to Varanasi, claiming that air-conditioned room at the guest house is unavailable. Despite all this, she stood firm on her ground and said that she would not leave without meeting the families of the victims.
Yesterday she tweeted, “The Uttar Pradesh government has sent ADG Varanasi Brij Bhushan, Commissioner Varanasi Deepak Agarwal, Commissioner Mirzapur, DIG Mirzapur for asking me to leave without meeting the victim families. They all are sitting with me for the last 1 hour. They have neither given any base nor any papers for keeping me under arrest.”
In another tweet, she mentioned that she would not leave until or unless she meets the family members of the victims.
Priyanka had this morning tried to move out of the guest house, but wasn’t allowed to by the police. However, when the family members of the shootout victims arrived, the police decided to let them enter the guest house and meet Priyanka.
After meeting the family members, she has decided to return back to Delhi with a promise to return back. “I’ll be back,” she said outside the guest house in which she was made to stay at night.
“My objective has been served as I have met them (victims of Sonbhadra firing). I am still under detention, let’s see what the administration says,” Priyanka Gandhi told reporters.
Taking a dig at Yogi Adityanath government, Priyanka said, “The responsibility for the Sonbhadra massacre is with the Yogi government and not with Nehru.” She also assured that the Congress will compensate the families affected by the shootout with Rs. 10 lakh each.
