NEW DELHI: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Monday slammed the Uttar Pradesh government over a car crash involving a girl who had levelled rape allegations against a BJP legislator, saying if it had any moral duty towards its citizens or not. In a series of tweets, she said the UP government still had “audacity” to run a “fear free campaign”.
“So a woman is allegedly raped by a BJP MLA. Her father is beaten up and dies in custody. A key witness dies mysteriously last year. Now her aunt who was also a witness is killed and her lawyer is critically injured in an accident caused by a truck with blackened number plates,” she tweeted.
“She herself lies grievously wounded in hospital from the same accident. The accused continues as a BJP legislator, and the BJP State Government has the audacity to run a fear-free UP campaign?” she added.
“Does it have no moral duty towards its citizens anymore, or was that never on its agenda anyway?” she wrote.
