Priyanka Vadra meets CAA victims in Varanasi

Varanasi: Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, continuing her campaign to meet victims of violence under the Yogi Adityanath regime, reached Varanasi on Friday.

Media was not allowed in during her meeting

Priyanka spent over an hour with those who had been arrested in the anti-CAA protests and heard their experiences. Members of the civil society were also present.

She met Ravi Shekhar and Ekta, the young couple who had been arrested, leaving their 14-month old baby in neighbour’s care.

She was accompanied by senior Congress leader Rajiv Shukla, UPCC president Ajay Kumar Lallu, CLP leader Aradhana Misra, former MP Rajesh Misra, former MLA Ajay Rai, among others.

Media was not allowed in during her meeting.

Senior Congress leader Shweta Rai also created a ruckus alleging that senior party leaders were being prevented from meeting Priyanka Vadra.

Priyanka also met the NSUI members who had registered a historic win in the students’ union elections of the Sanskrit University on Thursday, defeating ABVP candidates. Some students from the Banaras Hindu University also turned up to meet her.

Earlier, she took a boat ride to the Panch Ganga Ghat and then the Shri Vidya Math where hundreds had turned up to meet her.

She later went to the Kashi Vishwanath temple.
