While speaking to ANI, Anila Singh said, "There was an emotionally charged situation in Lakhimpur Kheri. Madam Priyanka Gandhi Vadra can go to any extent for photo optics to gain some political brownie points because they do not work hard on the ground so they keep on finding that if they get any such opportunity then they want to monetise it. Whether we talk about Madam Vadra or other political opposition leaders, they all want to go to that place just to make the situation more worst, Yogi government is not going to allow that."
Speaking on the FIR lodged against the Union Minister of State (MoS) for Home Ajay Mishra Teni's son, Ashish Mishra, she said, "Everybody is accusing Ajay Mishra and his son. FIR is lodged, judicial enquiry is on and I think very soon many facts will be out. Till then we should wait."
