Meerut: Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi hit back at BSP supremo Mayawati who had wondered why the Congress leader did not go to Rajasthan’s Kota where over 100 children died at a hospital in the last one month.
“She (Mayawati) should have gone and met the victims. A Congress team has been sent and it will send a report on the issue,” Gandhi said.
Mayawati also hit out recently at Priyanka Gandhi over visiting the families of the victims of the anti-Citizenship (Amendment) Act protests in Uttar Pradesh.
In a tweet, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo said: “What made the story sadder was that the top leadership of the Congress, which included a woman general secretary (Priyanka), had kept mum on the issue.”
“It would have been better had she met those poor mothers who lost kids in the manner she met Uttar Pradesh (protest) victims,” she tweeted.
“If the Congress woman General Secretary fails to go and meet the mothers of deceased kids in Rajasthan’s Kota district, her act of meeting victims of any matter in Uttar Pradesh will be considered a mere political drama being played for selfish political ambitions, on which the people of Uttar Pradesh should remain cautious,” the BSP chief said in a tweet.
