Priyanka Gandhi Vadra attacks PM Modi, CM Yogi over plight of Varanasi weavers


New Delhi: Congress chief Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Tuesday targetted Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath saying that weavers in Prime Minister’s constituency, Varanasi, are struggling amid the lockdown and sought a monetary package deal for them.

In a sequence of tweets, Congress chief mentioned that employees are pressured to stay by pawning their jewelry and homes.

“UP Chief Minister called the Prime Minister and organised an event and claimed that lakhs of jobs are being provided to workers in the small and medium industries. But in reality, the weavers of Prime Minister’s parliamentary constituency, which are the pride of Varanasi, are today forced to live by pawning their jewellery and mortgaging their houses,” she mentioned in a tweet (translated from Hindi). The senior Congress chief additionally connected a hyperlink of a information article on the weavers of Varanasi.



“During the lockdown, their work came to a standstill. The condition of small businessmen and artisans is very bad. Only a solid package of financial support, not propaganda, can get them out of this mess,” she tweeted.

On June 26, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had launched “Atma Nirbhar Uttar Pradesh Rojgar Abhiyan”, by means of video conferencing, within the presence of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
