Priyanka Gandhi criticises the UP govt for attacking Health Activists in Shahjahanpur

Lucknow: Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, the Congress general secretary, slammed the Uttar Pradesh government on Wednesday for allegedly attacking Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHA) workers in Shahjahanpur.

Priyanka Gandhi shared a video on Twitter "Every attack by the Uttar Pradesh government on the ASHA sisters is an insult to their work. My ASHA sisters have worked tirelessly during the COVID outbreak and on other occasions. It is their right to receive an honorarium. It is the government's responsibility to listen to them. The ASHA sisters are deserving of respect, and I am fighting alongside them”. The Congress party is committed to the right of providing an honorarium to ASHA sisters," Priyanka Gandhi said in another tweet. "If our government is formed, ASHA sisters and Anganwadi workers will be given an honorarium of Rs 10,000 per month," she added.

If the Congress is elected to power in the state in the upcoming assembly elections, ASHA workers will be paid Rs 10,000 per month, according to the Congress leader. Uttar Pradesh, in particular, is set to hold Assembly elections early next year. The BJP won 312 seats in the 403-member House of Assembly in the 2017 elections in Uttar Pradesh. In the most recent Assembly elections in the state, the Samajwadi Party (SP) won 47 seats, the BSP 19, and the Congress seven.
