Born in Delhi, aware of people’s issues better than Modi: Priyanka

NEW DELHI: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday sought to strike an emotional chord with people during a road show here, saying she was born in Delhi and is empathetic towards their aspirations, unlike Prime Minister Narendra Modi who, she claimed, has been here only for five years.

Holding her first road show in the national capital in support of Sheila Dikshit, the Congress candidate for Northeast Delhi constituency, Priyanka Gandhi challenged Modi to fight polls on the issues of GST, demonetisation and women security.

The road show started in Seelampur, a minority-dominated area, and meandered with a sea of people towards Yamuna Vihar depot, where it culminated.

Perched atop a minibus, she said, “I cannot disrespect you. We are not arrogant like the BJP. We know that you have made us what we are today.”

“Modi ji is in Delhi for five years. I was born in the city. I have seen every bylane. I will tell you (Modi) what the people of Delhi think. They are tired of your useless talk. You keep yourself confined to your Race Course Road residence,” said Priyanka Gandhi. (AGENCIES)
