Atrocities against women highest in Assam: Priyanka Vadra

Guwahati: Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who arrived in poll-bound Assam on Monday, said that in India, the highest number of cases of atrocities against the women are reported from Assam.

The BJP government has waived bank loans of lakhs of crores of rupees of big industrialists

Addressing an interactive meeting with the women tea garden workers and members of a self-help group at Gohpur in Biswanath district, Priyanka said that according to the centuries old Indian culture and tradition, whichever party comes to power must first take steps to empower the women.

“The BJP government promised to give employment to 25 lakh people, but not even one lakh people got jobs. I also have children. You also have children. While casting your vote, please think over the future of your children. Prices of essential commodities and cooking gas have crossed all limits,” she said, urging the people to vote for the Congress led seven-party ‘Mahajot’ (grand alliance).

Reiterating the Congress’ assurance to increase the daily wages of tea garden workers to Rs 365 if the party comes to power, Priyanka claimed that the BJP government has waived bank loans of lakhs of crores of rupees of big industrialists, but it did not waive a single rupee loan of the poor people.

Priyanka arrived in Guwahati on Monday to campaign for the party in Assam, where the Congress-led seven-party alliance will take on the ruling BJP-led three-party coalition.

Soon after her arrival, Priyanka offered prayers at the famous Kamakhya Devi temple.

Assam Congress media department chairperson Bobbeeta Sharma said that during her Assam tour, Priyanka would hold interactions with party office-bearers and diverse groups of people besides addressing public meetings in Tezpur on Tuesday.

The Congress leader, accompanied by the other state and central party leaders, on Monday launched a statewide campaign for the unemployed youth.
