Mumbai: Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday targeted the government led by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on crime in the state.
“The father of a girl who did not withdraw her case against molestation in Hathras was murdered. The body of a girl, who had been missing for several days in Bulandshahr, was found buried in a house. Every day some family is screaming for justice on the ground, contrary to the false propaganda of the UP BJPgovernment regarding crime,” read Priyanka’s tweet roughly translated from Hindi.
हाथरस में छेड़छाड़ के खिलाफ मुक़दमा वापस न लेने वाली एक लड़की के पिता की हत्या कर दी गई। बुलंदशहर में कई दिनों से गायब एक बच्ची का शव एक घर में गड़ा हुआ मिला।
अपराध को लेकर यूपी भाजपा सरकार के झूठे प्रचार के ठीक विपरीत जमीन पर हर रोज कोई न कोई परिवार न्याय के लिए चीख रहा है।
