Priyanka Gandhi interacted with about 40 to 50 weavers through videoconferencing and patiently heard the various problems being faced by them, media in-charge of the Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee Lalan Kumar said.

The weavers apprised her about the problems arising out of power tariff hike and also how their connections are being snapped. They also told her how the government went back on the promises made to them, he said.
