Women are being tortured in Uttar Pradesh: Priyanka
Priyanka Gandhi undertook a march with activists from the Shaheed Memorial in Lucknow to the Gandhi statue at Hazratangaj. He said, “injustice and atrocities are being done to women in the state. I went to meet the Unnao rape victim’s house. There the girl’s mother and family are kept locked in the house. We have not been allowed by the administration to speak, but the struggle of the Congress will continue.
The Congress on Monday announced to take out a march from Shahjahanpur to Lucknow in support of the victim student in the Chinmayanand case. Police arrested 350 Congressmen, including former Union Minister Jitin Prasad. Targeting the Yogi government, Congress said, “The voice of justice cannot be suppressed.” Congress has always raised the voice of the right, now we will protest silently.
