The General Secretary of Congress Priyanka Gandhi Vadra reached Rae Bareli on Tuesday to meet the family of former Congress legislator Akhilesh Singh who breathed his last on August twenty. Priyanka expressed her mother Sonia Gandhi’s condolences to his family and spent around 0.5 an hour with them.
Akhilesh Singh’s daughter aditi Singh became a Congress MLA from Rae Bareli Sadar seat that was earlier control by her father. Gandhi later left to meet her party staff at Bhuemau Guest House. She would later proceed to Lalganj’s modern Rail Coach factory wherever the workers are protesting against its privatisation.
Some of the agitating workers had met the Congress leader within the morning once she arrived in order that they might inform her of their demands. The Congress leader assured the staff that they’d have her full support in preventing the factory’s privatisation. The Ministry of Railways has envisaged corporatisation of its seven production units and associated workshops underneath one entity that is termed the Indian Railways rolling stock Company.
