Priyanka Gandhi Vadra Stops Speech After Rape Survivor's Mother Raises Slogans
Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra stopped mid-speech at a farmers' meeting in Uttar Pradesh's Mathura today when a rape survivor's mother in the crowd shouted slogans demanding justice. The woman was from Rajasthan, where the Congress is in power.
The woman's daughter was allegedly raped in Bharatput in Rajasthan, which borders Uttar Pradesh. She lives with relatives in Mathura and decided to go to the Congress rally when she heard Priyanka Gandhi would come for it.
The Congress leader was on stage, addressing the farmers' meeting when she was interrupted by the woman's slogans.
Priyanka Gandhi then spoke to the woman and took her aside. She dialed Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on the spot and asked him to help the rape survivor.
Mr Gehlot reportedly assured immediate action.
