Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Monday made a post on her Twitter. "The criminals in UP have the protection of the government so they can intimidate the rape victim." This comes after the arrest of about 80 Congress workers ahead of their protest march in support of the jailed law student. She accused former BJP Union Minister Swami Chinmayanand of raping her.
The opposition party added on its official Twitter handle that district borders in Shahjahanpur got blocked from all sides and Congress leaders such as Jitin Prasada detained.
Priyanka Gandhi said that BJP led UP Government is stopping her party's march in support of the law student. The student has accused Swami Chinmayanand of rape and arresting its leaders.
Party leaders Jitin Prasada and Kaushal Mishra on Monday said they were put under house arrest ahead of a 'Nyay Yatra' in support of the jailed law student.
