Addressing women at Mahila Shakti Samvaad, in Rae Bareli, Priyanka Gandhi said instead of understanding the problems of the public and finding its solutions, the BJP is tapping the phones of opposition leaders. In her address, she urged the women to vote for those who genuinely want to empower them. Empowerment does not mean a gas cylinder or a toilet, she said.
Speaking with India TV reporters, Priyanka Gandhi said instead of making roads, hospitals, creating jobs, listening to peoples’ grievances, the government is hearing the phone recording of its opponents.
Gandhi also lashed out at the SP, BSP for leaving their home just a few months before the UP polls and said Mayawati is nowhere to be seen campaigning, while Akhilesh Yadav has started campaigning in the last 2 months. It is only Congress that has been fighting against the UP government.
Earlier this month, she launched the party’s manifesto for women for the upcoming UP Assembly polls, making a slew of promises including 40% reservation for women in government jobs if her party comes into power.
