Lucknow: Cabinet Minister Sidharth Nath Singh on Saturday castigated the Congress party and its General Secretary Priyanka Vadra saying that those who ‘nurture’ the criminals like Mukhtar Ansari are now talking about Women’s security.
“Mukhtar, who is responsible for making dozens of women widows and children orphans, is a hero for the Congress and the party nurtures such criminals. The Congress Government and Priyanka made every effort to save Mukhtar Ansari, but it is with the strict and sustained efforts of the Yogi government that such criminals are now behind the bars”, said Sidharth Nath.
Slamming the Congress Party, the minister asserted that Priyanka Vadra and Congress are trying to politicize the issue of Anita Yadav and unnecessarily targeting the law and order situation in UP. Nath also said that Priyanka Gandhi has no right to talk about women’s safety as their party is completely responsible for nurturing hard-core criminals in the State.
The government spokesperson added that women have received the utmost protection and respect in the Yogi government. Under Mission Shakti, special help desks were set up for women at the district level from the police station.
Schemes like Pink Booth and Pink Patrolling are underway. Today the women of UP are proving their capability in every sector- be it the private sector or the government. In the last four years, women are fearlessly working with self-respect. The condition of women in Congress-ruled states is not hidden from anyone. If Priyanka Vadra was concerned with the pain of women, she would have gone to states like Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, and Punjab to share the misery of women. It is shameful to name women only for politics. Congress should find some concrete issue contest in the elections, he added.
Smashing the Congress, Sidharth Nath further said that the party is and will remain zero in Uttar Pradesh. “I advice Priyanka to refrain from her gimmicks as the Congress is not going to be revived in UP, ” said Singh adding, “people are not ready to extend support to Congress because of their anti-progressive attitude. Instead of giving constructive suggestions, the party is indulging in mudslinging against the State government for political mileage.”
Congress general secretary who is on a political tour to UP is trying to ruin the peaceful atmosphere of the state by spreading misinformation and confusion, but she will not succeed in this. The people of UP are already geared up to teach a lesson to the anti-national opposition that is pro-criminal and terrorist, said Singh.
