Raising the voice of respect for the woman, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Vadra reached Lakhimpur Kheri on Saturday. At the same time, raising the voice of their honor and respect, the workers of his own party were forced to sit on a dharna at the state headquarters. When Priyanka was holding meetings at the state headquarters, in the evening, Shabana Khandelwal, president of Mahila Congress Agra Zone, sat on a dharna in the premises along with all the women. He said that women workers from many districts have come to meet their leader. Camping here for two days, but not meeting. Neither the officials are allowing to meet nor the security personnel.
He said that while respecting the woman above caste and religion, Priyanka can go till Lakhimpur, then why will she not meet her own workers who have come from far away. However, soon after this the state in-charge called Shabana and assured of meeting on Sunday. Shabana said that she could have met as an office-bearer, but she staged a dharna to reunite the workers.
Demonstration against harassment of women in the party itself: Konark Dixit, who was expelled for raising his voice against the party's policy, again showed the mirror to the party. Writing on a placard alleging indecency and harassment of women workers in Congress, he staged a silent dharna on the GPO. Said that as Priyanka opposed the government on Friday, she has adopted the same method.
Unemployed of Rajasthan kept waiting for talks: Upen Yadav, state president of Rajasthan Unemployment Unified Federation, has also reached Lucknow to meet Priyanka. It is alleged that on Friday night, he was shooed away by Congressmen. When he reached the state headquarters again on Saturday, the national officials assured that talks would be held with the in-charge. He waited till late at night, but the meeting was not made.
