Congress leaders Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra have accused the UP government of protecting criminals after recent media reports surfaced claiming that a BJP MLA and his son allegedly protected a man accused of harassing a woman.
The Uttar Pradesh government made the request in a letter written to the Registrar of the High Court. The letter was written by Additional Chief Secretary -Home, Awanish Awasthi on behalf of the state government.
Priyanka Gandhi’s appeal seems to be largely missing in areas beyond the Congress strongholds of Amethi and Rae Bareli. However, she is yet to begin her campaign and get into combative mode to wrest eastern UP for her party.
