New Delhi: Ahead of state assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi made several promises.

While addressing the Pratigya Rally in Uttar Pradesh’s Moradabad, she said, “Our party will contest elections taking the issue of development and welfare of farmers.”

On the sugarcane farmers issue, Priyanka said, “It will take only Rs 4,000 crore for clearing all dues of sugarcane farmers. The Centre is paying Rs 20,000 crore for beautification of Parliament but doesn’t have the money to clear your dues.”

She promised that if Congress came to power in the state, then we will buy paddy and wheat from farmers at Rs 2500 per quintal, and sugarcane at Rs 400 per quintal.
