As per reports, the “vehicles trailing Priyanka’s car” bumped into each other on National Highway-9 in Hapur district “due to sudden application of brakes by one of them.”

“However, Priyanka’s car was not involved. After asking about the well-being of those involved in the accident, Priyanka left for Rampur,” Uttar Pradesh Congress president Ajay Kr Lallu told TOI.

Meanwhile, Priyanka Gandhi’s Cavalcade met with another accident in Amroha, according to Times Now.

Gandhi has reportedly continued heading towards Rampur as expected.  Today is the final Ardas program of Navreet Singh.

The death of Navreet Singh led to several controversies. FIRs were filed against journalist Rajdeep Sardesai and Congress MP Shashi Tharoor along with several others. Noted journalist and television news anchor Rajdeep Sardesai was reportedly taken off air by his channel, India Today, for two weeks, following a tweet he wrote regarding a protestor’s death at the January 26 tractor rally. 

“We’ve come to know that a farmer Navneet ji who came from Canada & was participating in protest peacefully, was shot at by Police & lost his life, during the tractor rally. Priyanka Gandhi will meet his family at his residence in Rampur today,” Ajay Kr Lallu was quoted as saying by ANI.
