"Predators are victimising innocents in Uttar Pradesh. Women are being pushed into a life of fear. Men are being burnt alive. But the government is not seeing anything. When will the Uttar Pradesh government start taking responsibility for the security of women and children?" Priyanka tweeted.

Priyanka, who is also in-charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh, posted pictures of several news headlines in Hindi about crime in the state on her Twitter handle. The Congress leader's comment comes in the wake of a sudden spurt in incidents of violence against women and children.

Most recently, a woman was allegedly raped by four men in front of her husband in Uttar Pradesh's Rampur.
