Lakhimpur: Uma slams Priyanka

Bhopal, Oct 5 (UNI) Former Union minister Uma Bharati said on Tuesday that Congress General Secretary in-charge of Uttar Pradesh Priyanka Gandhi Vadra and other party leaders should not speak on issues regarding which they have “no right” to express themselves.

“I suggest that the Congress adopts a cooperative and positive stance towards the government for solving peasants’ problems. The Congress – which had imposed Emergency – has lost the right to utter the word ‘democracy’. In 1984, that party’s leaders and workers burnt alive 10,000 Sikhs, therefore the word ‘non-violence’ does not suit them. Immediately after Independence, Mahatma Gandhi’s dream of recognising agriculture as the economic mainstay was destroyed by the then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. After that, farming and farmers kept regressing,” Bharatiya Janata Party leader and Madhya Pradesh’s ex-chief minister Bharati wrote in social media.
