Is he 'chowkidar' or 'shehenshah' from Delhi: Priyanka's swipe at PM

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Tuesday attacked Narendra Modi over drinking water being poured on the streets of Banda to welcome the Prime Minister despite severe drought in the Bundelkhand region, and asked whether he is a "chowkidar" or a "shehenshah" from Delhi.

Prime Minister Modi will visit Banda, Uttar Pradesh, later this week to address an election rally.

"When the whole of Bundelkhand, the men, women, children, and all living beings, are grappling with severe drought, drinking water from tankers is being poured on the streets of Banda to welcome our Prime Minister. Is he the chowkidar or a shehenshah arriving from Delhi," Priyanka Gandhi tweeted with a video of water being poured on the street from a tanker.

Banda will go to the polls in the fifth phase on May 6.
