Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi who is very active in Uttar Pradesh on Friday reacted on the Kanpur firing incident and emphasised on the need to fix accountability in the state.

“As the news about the incident in Kanpur came to the fore, a family of four were also killed in Prayagraj. Father and daughter were murdered in Ghaziabad. Looking at this Jungle Raj, the accountability will have to be fixed,” Priyanka Gandhi said on Twitter.

She also paid condolences to the family of eight police personnel who lost their lives in an encounter with criminals in Kanpur.

Priyanka Gandhi further asserted that the law and order situation in the state is in shambles and demanded strict action.
