Congress has made an issue of CM Yogi Adityanath’s statement regarding sweeping during house arrest in Sitapur. Congress will sweep all the districts of UP on Saturday. District Congress committees have been instructed in this regard. Priyanka Gandhi herself has also written about this by tweeting. Priyanka Gandhi wrote that today the Chief Minister of UP showed his anti-Dalit mentality by giving a casteist statement. Tomorrow all the district congress committees of UP will clean the Lord Valmiki temple. India will not tolerate the insult of crores of Dalits and women of the country.

Actually, Priyanka had broomed during the house arrest in Sitapur Guest House. In a conversation with a channel on Friday, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, while answering a question on this matter, said that the public wants to make him worthy, the public has made him worthy. Angered by this statement of CM Yogi, Priyanka Gandhi reached Lavkush Nagar Dalit Basti in Indira Nagar, Lucknow. There he planted a broom in the Valmiki temple. Talking to the sanitation workers there, he said that some people have said that Priyanka Gandhi has been left only by the people of UP to sweep. This is not mine, you have been insulted.
Priyanka said that crores of women-sister-brothers in our country do the work of sweeping the broom every day, they are sanitation workers. Clean the streets. I have come here to say that whatever work you do, do it with self-respect. I have come to teach those who have wrong mindset that all work is done with self-respect. It is wrong to say this about my sisters. If they insult you, they will have to suffer.
State President Lallu planted a broom in Varanasi
On the call of Priyanka, the state president Ajay Lallu took a broom in Varanasi on Friday evening itself. Lallu sweeps Varanasi’s famous crematorium Manikarnika. He said that the Manikarnika Ghat is full of sewer water, the Mahashamshan Baba temple is completely submerged in the sewer water. State President Shri Ajay Lallu said that the temple of Mahashamshan Baba at Manikarnika Ghat in Kashi, the city of religion, is submerged in sewer water. This government is asleep. The BJP government, which is creating a pretense in the name of religion and Hindutva, has become completely ruthless. The condition of Prime Minister’s parliamentary constituency is very pathetic. The passers-by, the cremation workers, the pilgrims, all have to pass through sewage. Today we Congressmen have shown a mirror to the government by donating shramdaan. The Chief Minister has become completely insensitive. There are only lies all around. The ground reality is bad. Lallu was accompanied by former minister Ajay Rai and former MP Rajesh Mishra.
