New Delhi, Aug 25: A day after visuals of a Kashmiri woman narrating her ordeal to Rahul Gandhi on flight that she happened to share with the Congress leader, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has attacked the Centre and said that this is just one out of the millions being silenced in the valley.
How long is this going to continue? This is one out of millions of people who are being silenced and crushed in the name of Nationalism, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi tweeted.
Priyanka Gandhi further criticised the clampdown in Kashmir and said that there is nothing more "anti-national" than snatching away democratic rights from the people.
There is NOTHING more political' and anti-national' than the shutting down of all democratic rights that is taking place in Kashmir. It is the duty of every one of us to raise our voices against it, we will not stop doing so, Priyanka Gandhi said in another tweet.
The Gandhi scion can be seen consoling the woman, while other Congress leaders, like Ghulam Nabi Azad, Anand Sharma, KC Venugopal, and other opposition leaders gave a patient hearing to the woman's emotional outburst.
A delegation of 12 opposition leaders, led by Rahul Gandhi, had gone to Kashmir to know the ground realities in the Valley, but they were not allowed to move out of the Srinagar airport and were deported to Delhi on an evening flight.
