Why is Priyanka silent on women harassment in states ruled by Congress and its allies: Anurag Thakur

The Uncut

Hamirpur. Union Minister Anurag Thakur on Tuesday accused Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra of being silent on incidents of harassment of women in states ruled by her party and its allies. During several election rallies in Hamirpur parliamentary constituency, Thakur said that Priyanka Gandhi, who gave the slogan “Mai ladki hun, main lad sakti hun”, does not see the atrocities being committed on mothers and sisters in Sandeshkhali of Bengal.

He alleged that it is their “vote bank politics” that made them ignore the harassment of a woman MP by their colleagues in Delhi. Thakur was referring to the alleged attack on Rajya Sabha member Swati Maliwal at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence in the national capital.

The BJP leader said, “She (Priyanka) should change her slogan to ‘Main ladki hun, lekin main lad nahi sakti’ (I am a girl, but I cannot fight).” Thakur, the BJP candidate from Hamirpur Lok Sabha seat, alleged that Priyanka has come to Himachal to deceive the people without fulfilling her party’s old promises. He said, “The irony of the Congress and its leaders is that even after 75 years of independence, they think that the public can be mislead.”
