Election 2019 : Priyanka slams Modi govt for unkept promises, spread of hatred


New Delhi : Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra Tuesday targeted the Modi government over “unfulfilled” promises and “destruction” of institutions and said she was saddened by what was happening in the country.

Addressing her first political rally in Gujarat after assuming charge as Congress general secretary in early February, she advised people to be vigilant, treat their vote as a “weapon” and ask right questions.

“Our institutions are being destroyed. Wherever you see, hatred is being spread.

“Nothing matters more to us that you and I protect this nation, work for it and move forward together,” the Congress leader said.

“I am saddened by what is happening in our country today. I want you all to be more aware. That is the best sign of patriotism.

“Your vote is your weapon. You are not supposed to harm someone with that weapon. But it will make you stronger,” she said.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi were present at the rally near Adalaj village of Gandhinagar district.

In her address, she asked people not to fall prey to “meaningless issues” and asked them to broach the right questions.
