Congress general secretary in-charge of Uttar Pradesh Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Sunday met Nishad community members in Prayagraj and promised them “legal help” in cases related to a scuffle with the police and damage to their boats on February 5.

A case under rioting, attempt to murder and illegal mining charges was lodged against 10 identified and around 150 unidentified people after a clash between the police and Nishads in Prayagraj. The police have claimed that local residents attacked JCB machines to oppose the administrative action against illegal sand mining.
