Congress Woman Leader Thrashed; Here’s What Victim Tara Yadav Said
Tara Yadav has claimed that she was thrashed by the party workers for questioning Congress’s decision to give a ticket, to contest by-polls, to a rapist.
Congress workers manhandled party leader Tara Yadav at an event in Uttar Pradesh for questioning the decision of the party to field Mukund Bhaskar Mani Tripathi from the Deoria Assembly seat for the upcoming by-polls. “On one hand, our party leaders are fighting for justice for #HathrasCase victim, and on the other hand, party ticket is being given to a rapist. It is the wrong decision. It will malign the image of our party,” Tara Yadav had said. As the nomination for the by-polls in seven Assembly seats of Uttar Pradesh began on Friday (October 9), the Congress declared the name of five candidates including Mukund Bhaskar Mani Tripathi, who is contesting from the Deoria Assembly seat.
The voting will take place on November 3 and the counting of votes on November 10. In a video posted by a news agency, Congress workers are seen attacking the woman leader. “I was thrashed by party workers when I questioned the party’s decision to give a ticket to a rapist, Mukund Bhaskar, for upcoming by-polls. Now, I’m waiting for Priyanka Gandhi ji to take action,” she said. Meanwhile, the National Commission for Women (NCW) took cognisance of the woman leader’s thrashing and asked authorities to arrest all culprits immediately. NCW chairperson Rekha Sharma shared a video saying that the political leaders behaving like goons with woman leader in a party meeting should be punished.
