Amethi: Workers of a private textile mill
on Saturday stopped the vehicle of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra to convey
their grievances over alleged non-payment of their pending
salaries.

"Women workers of Seena Textile Mills in Rae Bareli
(the constituency of her mother Sonia Gandhi), who came at
Mushiganj guest house to meet Priyanka this morning, stopped
her cavalcade after they were denied entry inside the guest
house," officials said.

Priyanka later spoke to the workers, who claimed that
the 800 employees have not been paid salary for the last five
months.

She assured them that she will discuss the matter with
her brother Rahul Gandhi and her mother.

The workers told her that they have already raised the
issue before Rahul Gandhi, who too has promised to look into
the matter.

The workers said that they had also written a letter
to UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi in this regard.
