Priyanka Gandhi said the middle-class is suffering due to rising inflation, loot by private hospitals, electricity bills, school fees, and loss of trade”
The General Secretary of Indian National Congress, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Thursday said that she demanded relief from the state government to the middle-class families in Uttar Pradesh.
While expressing that the middle-class families in UP were suffering due to the new wave of Coronavirus which also forced authorities to put restrictions on movement, the Congress leader said that many people were forced to take steps like borrowing loans and withdrawal of provident funds.
“The middle-class is suffering due to rising inflation, loot by private hospitals, electricity bills, school fees and loss of trade,” she said.
She added, “Many people have to take steps like taking loans, premature withdrawal of FDs, withdrawing money from provident funds.”
Priyanka Gandhi disclosed that she has written a letter to the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister in this connection, asking him to provide some relief to the badly affected middle-class families. “I have written a letter to Yogi Ji, urging him to give relief to the middle-class,” she stated.
Earlier, the Congress General Secretary slammed the UP government for ‘taking away their honor even after death’ of teachers who died ‘while doing duty in the Panchayat elections.’
She tweeted, “Insensitive to the list released by the UP Teachers Association of 1621 teachers who died while doing duty in the Panchayat elections, the UP government is saying only three teachers died.”
“The teachers did not get proper safety equipment and treatment while they did their duty and now the government is taking away their honor even after death,” Priyanka Gandhi alleged.
Priyanka had previously chastised the BJP for holding Panchayat elections in Uttar Pradesh when the new wave of Coronavirus outbreak was raging. She had stated that what was happening in the state was a “crime against humanity” and that the State Election Commission was just “playing along.”
