Rahul Gandhi to visit Lakhimpur tomorrow
Amid the state government’s efforts at blocking many opposition leaders, including Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who have made a beeline for the district where eight people were killed in Sunday’s violence. Congress leader Rahul Gandhi plans to visit Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri on Wednesday, his party has announced.
In a letter written to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, the Congress said a five-member delegation led by Rahul Gandhi planned to visit the district. It also called the detention of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra “without any reason or justification”.
“Presently I am not going into the details of the completely illegal physical force used on my colleagues and me at the time of my arrest as this statement serves merely to clarify the continuing illegality of my confinement at the PAC compound in Sitapur, UP,” priyanka Gandhi told in her statement.
