Priyanka urges PM not to share stage with MoS


New Delhi, November 20

The Congress on Saturday asked PM Narendra Modi to sack Minister of State (Home) Ajay Mishra, the father of an accused in the Lakhimpur Kheri killings, saying if the PM’s intentions about farmers were indeed pious, he would remove the minister from the Union Cabinet.

Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi made the demand publicly reading out an open letter to the PM today.

“If your intention is clear about the farmers, you should not share the stage with the Union Minister of State for Home at the DGPs’ conference and remove him,” she said.

Her statement invited a rebuttal from UP minister Sidharth Nath Singh. “Since when has the corporate Congress started caring for farmers? For you, the biggest farmer is Robert Vadra, who purchased land at throwaway prices from farmers and sold it at exorbitant rates,” he said. — TNS
