New Delhi:

Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi in Lucknow on Monday hit out at Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, saying there is no place for violence or "revenge" in the country.

Concluding her four-day visit to Lucknow days after statewide violent clashes over the Citizenship Amendment Act, she told mediapersons that her own security was not a big issue.

The Congress leader downplayed the issue of her security, saying it needn't be discussed.  

Here’s what Priyanka Gandhi said in Lucknow:

  • “Saffron denotes Hinduism, a religion that does not advocate violence or revenge," the Congress general secretary said in a jibe at the chief minister days after he had said that those who had damaged public assets would be made to pay.
  • "The issue is the safety of the common man in UP," she said in an apparent  reference to her alleged manhandling by the state police. 
  • "The question of my security is not a big one. It is a small question on which there is no need to hold any discussion. I will not raise the issue of security because it is a trivial matter. It has nothing to do with the public."
  • "The public is bothered about what is happening in the state today. There is anarchy; no one has job; there is unemployment; and the women are feeling insecure. There are so many bigger issues, but you are raising trivial issues."
