A resident of Bilariyaganj block, the epicenter of anti-CAA protests in Azamgarh district, six-year-old Anabia Imaan has received a surprise postcard and gifts from Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday.
The handwritten postcard, written in Hindi in black ink, reads, “Dear Anabia, I have bought a few things for you. I hope you will like them. Always remain my ‘brave girl’ and whenever you want to, call me. Lots of love, Priyanka Aunty.”
The postcard and gifts which included a bag and diary were handed over to Anabia by the head of the UP-Congress minority cell, Shahnawaz Alam.
After a police crackdown on anti-CAA protesters, Priyanka had visited Bilariyaganj block and had met family members of those who had been jailed for taking part in anti-CAA protests.
Priyanka had met women protesters who had faced tear gas and rubber pellets from the police. It was during one such meeting that Priyanka had also consoled Anabia, draping an arm around her and wiping her tears.
Clad in a green sweater, the class one student had broken down when asked how she was doing. Her picture with the Congress general secretary had gone viral on social media.
