Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Sunday launched a scathing attack against the BJP in PM Narendra Modi’s constituency Varanasi, saying only the ruling party leaders and their ”billionaire friends” are safe in the country. Vadra said this during a ”Kisan Nyay Rally”, days after eight people, including four farmers, were killed in the Lakhimpur Kheri violence. 

Union Minister Ajay Mishra’s son Ashish Mishra has been arrested in connection with the case. Addressing the rally, Priyanka said when she speaks to people, they tell her that there are no jobs and income. Farmers, Dalits and women are feeling harassed, she claimed.
