Ever since being entrusted with the responsibility of eastern Uttar Pradesh in the Lok Sabha Elections 2019, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has consistently been taking an aggressive stand against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government of the state. Slamming the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath over the increasing crimes in the state, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Tuesday said that the speed of crime is twice the speed of governance. The Congress General Secretary has also alleged that the Yogi Adityanath government repeatedly covers the crime incidents.
In a tweet on Tuesday morning, the Congress General Secretary said that even though the UPChief Minister keeps telling the pace of the functioning of the government, the speed of crime in the state is much more than that. Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, citing the data of Sunday, August 23 and Monday, August 24, wrote the Sanskrit line ‘प्रत्यक्षम्किम्प्रमाणम्’ (Evident does not require proof) on the lines of the popular Hindi idiom ‘Hath Kangan Ko Rc Kya’ While writing that the ordeal of crime on the roads of Uttar Pradesh continues.
“This is the crime meter of only two days in UP. The UP government repeatedly covers the incidents of crime, but crime is visible on the streets of the state,” the tweet further read.
According the charts in the tweet, On Sunday, 23 August, Mom-Sun murdered, Tripple murder was reported in Jaunpur, Double murder was reported in Prayajraj, Women’s body was found in Unnao, an innocent was reported murdered in Bareily, a businessman was attacked in Kaushambi, a labourer was murdered in Chitrkoot, murder in Muzzafarnagar and finally a gangrape was reported in Varanasi.
In the second chart, the events of Monday or August 24 in the chart are written in a sequential manner in which the murder of a journalist in Ballia, assault on a youth in Ghaziabad, gang rape by kidnapping a Dalit student in Baghpat, murder of a man in Barabanki, the beating of a young man in Bijnor, the killing of a soldier in Sultanpur, the murder of a young man in Fatehpur, was mentioned.
Last week, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra wrote on micro-blogging website Twitter, “The biggest drawback of the UP government is that instead of solving the problem of the general public, it comes down to lying and bullying … there is Urea problem in the state … black market is on the rise … Scam are also happening in many districts … The farmer is upset, but the UP government is silently saying that all is well … “. Through this post Priyanka Gandhi Vadra had shared the news related to the problems being faced by the farmers of the state due to black marketing of urea and its shortage.She posted cuttings from a Hindi daily with headlines about the fertiliser scam. The headline stated that two trucks loaded with urea went missing, one found unloading in Chandausi.
Last month, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra also wrote a letter to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to demand the release of Dr.Kafeel Khan, who was in discussion due to the hospital’s oxygen scandal in Gorakhpur district of the state. She had also requested the Chielf Minister of Uttar Pradesh to help Dr Kafeel Khan get justice.
Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, citing some recent incidents had also said last week that ‘Jungle Raj’ is on the rise in Uttar Pradesh due to the increasing crime incidents in the state, but the BJP government of the state is doing nothing except transferring the officials. The Congress General Secretary also sarcastically questioned whether Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has stopped watching the news.
