Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi, who has been under detention since Monday morning at Sitapur PAC guest house, released a video message for Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Reminding him of his “moral responsibility towards the nation and the protesting farmers”, she asks him to “listen to the farmers and protect them.”
“Greetings, Modi ji. I have heard that you are visiting Lucknow to celebrate “Azadi ka amrut mahotsav”. I want to ask you have you seen this video (shows her phone with the Lakhimpur Kheri video of vehicles ploughing protesting farmers). This video shows that how the son of your government’s minister ran over his car over protesting farmers. Watch this video and explain to this country that why this minister has not been sacked yet and why is his son still not arrested? Your police forces have already detained opposition leaders like me without any arrest warrant or an FIR. I want to know why is this man still roaming free,” she said in the clip.
