Priyanka Gandhi Vadra was stopped in Mirzapur district from visiting Sonbhadra where she was scheduled to meet the victims of a clash where 10 people died.

I want to see the orders which stopped me from visiting victims: Priyanka Gandhi

Priyanka Gandhi said while sitting on Dharna “I wanted to meet the victims of the clash peacefully who had fallen to the bullets in the clash. I want to see the orders under which I have been stopped to meet the victims.”

Earlier General Secretary of UP for Congress had tweeted that “UP Government has failed to contain the crime in UP. People are being killed in daylight.  Land Mafia have killed 9 Gond Adivasi including 3 women in Umbha village of Sonbhadra. Administration, Region-Head and Ministers are all sleeping. Is this how a crime-free state is made?”
