Hudhud times: Surprise visit to Dalit locality by Priyanka Gandhi, Lucknow, Hudhudtimes reports.

Hudhud times: Lucknow | Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Friday paid a surprise visit to a Dalit locality in Lucknow and picked up a broom, reacting to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s dig at her for sweeping the floor at the Sitapur guest house where she was detained.

Taking on the chief minister for his “casteist comment”, Ms Gandhi Vadra later in a tweet announced that all district committees of the party will clean Valmiki temples on Saturday.

In a reply to a query over Ms Gandhi’s act of sweeping the floor during her detention, Mr Adityanath earlier in the day had said people want them to be fit only for this and they reduce them to it (janata unko usi layak banana chahti, aur usi layak bana diya).
These people have no work except spreading nuisance and negativity, he said during a programme at a private TV news channel.

In response to the chief minister’s remark, Ms Gandhi descended on a Dalit colony and picked up a broom, saying it is a symbol of simplicity and self-respect.
