Priyanka Vadra ends dharna, returns to Delhi

Mirzapur (Uttar Pradesh): “I am now leaving because my purpose of meeting the families of the victims has been fulfilled. But I will return very soon. I had come here on the instructions of my brother Rahul Gandhi.”

Priyanka met the family members of the victims who had come to the guest house in Chunar

This is what Congress General Secretary Priyanka Vadra told people and party workers before ending her 24-hour dharna here on Saturday.

Mirzapur District Magistrate Anurag Patel on Saturday said that the Congress leader was free to go since she had neither been detained, nor arrested. The DM on Friday night had asked her to furnish a personal bond of Rs 50,000 so that she could be allowed to go.

Earlier on Saturday, Priyanka met the family members of the victims who had come to the guest house in Chunar to meet her after she was prevented from going to meet them in Sonebhadra where 10 people were killed in clashes over a land dispute on Wednesday.

She said that Congress will provide a compensation of Rs 10 lakh each to the deceased person’s families.

The Congress termed the entire episode as a ‘major victory for the party’ and slammed the Yogi Adityanath-led government in Uttar Pradesh for resorting to fascism and preventing their leaders from visiting Sonebhadra.
