New Delhi: Congress general secretary for eastern Uttar Pradesh, Priyanka Gandhi, took a fresh dig at PM Narendra Modi. She shared a video of preparations being laid out for the PM’s welcome in Bundelkhand region of the state. In the video clip, water tankers can be seen being emptied on the roads for cleaning purposes which she claims is being done ahead of the Prime Minister’s arrival in the region.
“Jab poora Bundelkhand, wahan ke nar naari, school ke bachhe, faslein aur pashu-pakshi bhayankar sookhe ka aatank jhel rahe hain, humare pradhan pracharmantri ke swagath ka paani tankeron se Banda ki sadkon par udhela ja raha hai... Yah chowkidar hai ya Dilli se padhare koi shehenshah? When the whole of Bundelkhand, the women and men there, school-going children, crops, cattle and birds are all suffering from severe drought, drinking water is being blown by tankers on the roads of Banda in the reception of our Prime Minister. Is he a chowkidar (watchman) or an emperor from Delhi?” she said in her post.
जब पूरा बुंदलेखंड, वहाँ के नर नारी, स्कूलों के बच्चे, फसलें और पशु-पक्षी भयंकर सूखे का आतंक झेल रहे हैं हमारे प्रधान प्रचारमंत्री के स्वागत में पीने का पानी टैंकरों से बाँदा की सड़कों पर उड़ेला जा रहा है। यह चौकीदार हैं या दिल्ली से पधारे कोई शहंशाह?— Priyanka Gandhi Vadra (@priyankagandhi)
