Priyanka Gandhi Amethi, Apr 13 (ANI): Priyanka Gandhi on Monday accused the Mayawati- led Uttar Pradesh Government for creating impediments in the developmental works in Amethi, which is represented in Parliament by her brother Rahul Gandhi.

“A non-Congress government in Uttar Pradesh or at the Centre has always tried to create hurdles in executing development works. For instance, the Uttar Pradesh Government did its best to halt the proposed Rail Coach Factory project in Rai Bareli,” she said while addressing an election rally here.

Priyanka asked the people to vote for the party, which has worked for their development.

“Hence when you go to cast your votes do it with all responsibility and vote for the party which has worked for your development,” she added.

She also enlisted several welfare activities carried out by the Congress-led Central Government in the past five years.

“The Gandhi family has ensured the development for Amethi. There are several welfare activities carried out in the past five years by the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) at the Centre and Rahul Gandhi as an MP of the constituency,” she added.

Amethi will go to polls on April 23. (ANI)
