Priyanka Gandhi said that out of 125 candidates, 40 percent are women and 40 percent are youth. With this historic decision, we hope that a new kind of politics will start in the state. She said that our Unnao candidate is the mother of the Unnao gang rape victim. We have given them a chance to continue their struggle. The power through which her daughter was tortured, her family was ruined, they should get the same power.
UP Elections 2022:
We have also given ticket to Ramraj Gond, one of the victims of Sonbhadra massacre. Similarly, the Asha sisters did a lot of work in Corona, but they were beaten up. We have also given ticket to one of them, Poonam Pandey.
Priyanka Gandhi further said that Sadaf Jaffer had struggled a lot during CAA-NRC. The government harassed him by getting his photo printed in the poster. My message is that if you are tortured then fight for your rights. Congress is with such women. There are a total of 403 seats in UP where assembly elections are to be held in seven phases.
