Targeting Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath in his bastion, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Sunday alleged that his government has been working against the teachings of Saint Gorakhnath and made a flurry of poll promises, including farm loan waiver and purchasing wheat and paddy at Rs 2,500 per quintal from farmers.

"You take any section of society be it Dalits, weavers or Brahmins, everybody has been exploited. The administration of Yogi Adityanath ji is working completely against the 'vichaar' (teachings) of Guru Gorakhnath," she said at a rally, taking a swipe at the BJP leader who is also the head of the prominent Mutt here named after Saint Gorakhnath.

Urging the people to bring a change, Priyanka Gandhi said it is time that they question their faith in leaders who have ''played with their feelings in the name of religion and caste''.

Criticising the central government on privatisation, she alleged that the roads, airports and railways made by the Congress were being sold. "They ask what has been done in 70 years, I say that the hardwork of 70 years has been done away within seven years," she said.
