Ahead of the UP Assembly elections 2022, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi made an important announcement on Tuesday and informed that the party will be giving 40% of its UP Assembly elections tickets to women.
Priyanka Gandhi said, "Women will fully participate in the Uttar Pradesh Assembly Elections. Parties think they can appease women by giving an LPG cylinder, Rs 2000."
She added, "This decision has been taken for the rape victim in Unnao who was burnt to death, for the victim in Hathras who did not get justice, for the girl I met in Lakhimpur Kheri who said she wanted to become the Prime Minister. This decision is for every woman who wants to take Uttar Pradesh forward."
She also described politics of country as filled with hatred and said that only women can end it. She also asked all the women to walk shoulder-to-shoulder with her during the elections.
