Gorakhpur: Congress party led by General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has organised 'Pratigya Rally' in Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's bastion Gorakhpur on Sunday.
The 'Pratigya Rally' is another in the series of rallies being held by the Uttar Pradesh Congress across the state ahead of the 2022 assembly elections. Priyanka Gandhi had launched her campaign with a rally from Varanasi, which is Prime Minister Narendra Modi's parliamentary constituency, on October 10.
Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said, "Dalits, weavers, OBCs, the poor, minorities and Brahmins have been exploited. Yogi Adityanath Ji is running the Government against the teachings of Guru Gorakhnath. This Government is attacking people on a daily basis".
"They (SP and BSP) say Congress is working in collusion with BJP. I want to ask: why don't they stand with you in your tough times. Only Congress is fighting. I will die but never have any kind of relationship with BJP", she said.
Priyanka hit back at BJP's constant tirde against the grand old party. The saffron party for long has been launching attack questioning Congress' rule for the lat 70 years.
She said, "Congress established Railways, airports, roads. They're selling all of them. They ask what we did in 70 years. They've wasted efforts of 70 years in just 7 years...There're five crore unemployed youths in Uttar Pradesh. Three youths die by suicide every day due to unemployment".
Recalling her grandmother Indira Gandhi, Priyanks said she draws inspiration and convition from the late prime minister.
"She (ex-PM Indira Gandhi) knew that she could be murdered but never bowed down because for her, there was nothing greater than your faith in her. It's because of her teachings that I'm standing in front of you and I'll also never break your faith", said Priyanka Gandhi.
