Amid girls' 'auction' reports in Rajasthan, BSP chief Mayawati attacks Priyanka Gandhi

"Is this the real and cruel face of the Congress party which claims 'ladki hoon lad sakti hoon' and its state government," she said.

Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati slammed Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi for her "ladki hoon lad sakti hoon' campaign after reports of alleged auction of girls for loan repayment in Rajasthan’s Bhilwara district surfaced recently.

In a tweet, the BSP chief said, "The auctioning of girls on stamp papers in the panchayats of Rajasthan for loan repayment is a very sad incident which shames the social and government system."

"Is this the real and cruel face of the Congress party which claims 'ladki hoon lad sakti hoon' and its state government," she said.

Gandhi had launched the 'ladki hoon lad sakti hoon' campaign in 2021 ahead of the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections focusing on women empowerment.

In another tweet, Mayawati said, "Concerned commissions should take suo moto cognizance of this incident, however, this is not a proper solution. The Congress government there should take strict action against the culprits as well as tender an immediate apology to the women and the people of that state."

The National Commission for Women (NCW) had on Friday formed a two-member fact-finding team to look into allegations.

Meanwhile, amid the shocking reports NCW has also written to the Rajasthan chief secretary and demanded urgent action and asked to apprise the commission of the action taken.
