New Delhi: Taking a dig at the BJP-led government in Uttar Pradesh, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Sunday said these ‘chowkidars’ (watchmen) are only working for the rich and are not bothered about the poor.

She attacked the Uttar Pradesh government while citing a media report on Twitter that claimed the dues of sugarcane farmers had crossed Rs 10,000 crore in the state.

 

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was quick to rebut Ms Gandhi’s claim, and asked the Congress where were the well-wishers of farmers during 2012-17 when they faced starvation.

“The families of sugarcane farmers toil day and night but the Uttar Pradesh government does not even take the responsibility of paying their dues,” Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said.

She added that “`10,000 crore of farmers’ dues means everything, including their children’s education, food, health, and the next produce comes to a standstill. These chowkidars only work for the rich and do not care about the poor”.

 

She was recently appointed the Congress general secretary for UP East.
