All India Congress Committee (AICC) general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has postponed her plan to address a kisan mahapanchayat in Mathura on Friday to February 23, after the demise of the veteran party leader Captain Satish Sharma.
A letter to the effect issued by Vadra’s office stated her programme has been postponed due to the untimely demise of Captain Sharma. “Sharma was a dear friend who stood by the family through thick and thin. People of Amethi and Raebareli will always remember him as a people’s person, who stood by them during difficult times,” she said, adding she and her family have lost a true friend.
Congress district president Deepak Chaudhary said Vadra will now address the meeting in Mathura’s Palikhera, where over 20,000 people are expected to join the gathering. On being asked about the aggressive involvement of political parties in the ongoing nationwide farmers’ agitation, by organising kisan mahapanchayats across west UP, former Congress MLA Pradeep Mathur said, “Congress is working hard in support of the farmers’ protest which began from Punjab and continues till date.” He added his party will continue supporting farmers till they get justice.
Vadra, who handles Uttar Pradesh affairs for the party, has already addressed three farmers’ meetings in Rampur, Saharanpur and Bijnor, under the ‘Jai Jawan-Jai Kisan’ campaign. She began this campaign earlier this month from Rampur, where, before addressing the gathering, she paid respects to the farmer who died in the fracas during the farmers’ tractor rally in Delhi on Republic Day.
