Priyanka Gandhi: Govt shielding minister & son; Modi can tour world but won’t meet farmers.

Launching a scathing attack on the BJP government over the deaths in Lakhimpur Kheri, AICC general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Sunday said that the government is “shielding” Union MoS Ajay Mishra’s son Ashish, and the Centre has never listened earnestly to issues being faced by the farmers.

“Last week, the son of Union MoS (Home) mowed down six farmers with his vehicle. Families of all the victims said they want justice but all of you have seen is that the government is shielding the minister and his son? Have you seen in any country that a person who mowed down six people is being ‘invited’ by the police to talk to them?” Gandhi said while addressing the ‘Kisan Nyay’ rally in Varanasi.
