Lucknow/Barabanki , Congress National General Secretary Smt. Priyanka Gandhi flagged off the Congress' Pratigya Yatra' from Harakh Bazar in Barabanki. Reiterating the promise of "Vachan Hum Nibhayenge" while announcing seven pledges, she attacked the double engine government of the BJP fiercely. She said that the government's efforts to crush justice will not be successful, the oppressive treatment of farmers cannot be accepted at any cost. The way in Lakhimpur the state government tried to suppress the killing of the innocent farmers on their way back to their homes by the son of a member of the Prime Minister's cabinet, it was the strategic planning of crushing justice, for opposing which I was detained.

She said that this government misbehaved with the farmers at the government purchasing centers, the farmer's produce was bought in limited quantity, due to mismanagement in the paddy purchase, a farmer of Lakhimpur lit his paddy lying in the market. Whereas, a farmer of Lalitpur died standing in line at the fertilizer distribution center due to mismanagement in the distribution of fertilizers. The BJP government of Uttar Pradesh is leaving no stone unturned to harass the farmers. The BJP government uses sticks on the unemployed youths seeking jobs, the selected candidates are agitating for joining, but there is no hearing in this government. Every section of the society is distressed today, Congress is standing with the victims and it is our efforts to get justice for them, for which I am ready for every struggle.

Inter pass girls will get smartphone and graduate girl students will get scooty. The entire loan of the farmers will be waived off. The minimum support price of paddy will be given at the rate of Rs 2500 and to the sugarcane Rs 400 per quintal. Promising to do all this after the formation of the Congress government in Uttar Pradesh, She said that the small shopkeepers, Poor families in front of whom the crisis of livelihood stood in the Corona period, Half of the electricity bill will help them clear the dues of Corona period.

She announced that 25 thousand rupees would be given to the families affected during the Corona period.
