altJPNN| Rae Bareli | Jan 16, 2015|On a two-day visit to her mother's parliamentary constituency, Priyanka Gandhi today chalked out a six-month protest plan for her party men against the state and central government. The 43-year-old star campaigner of Congress who reached here yesterday addressed the office-bearers of party's district, block and city units at the Bhueymau guest house. According to the party workers present at the meeting today, Priyanka asked them to protest against anti-people policies of Prime Minister Modi and Akhilesh Yadav government in Uttar Pradesh.The party units were asked to hold protests during January and February

at the tehsils on issues like shortage of fertiliser, power and water. The protest over the issues would reach the district headquarters in March, they said. The workers have also been asked to organise Holi milan at every nyay panchayat level and establish a direct contact with the people. Priyanka encouraged the workers to be fully prepared for the Panchayat elections likely in April-May and stated that the elections would give the party a chance to assess its strength, party workers said.

Congress would launch an agitation in favour of farmers in May raising the issue of support price of wheat and hold street protests in June against the "unfulfilled promises" of Modi government. The party is also thinking to implement the six-month plan all over the country, they said. Meanwhile employees of Infotech Tower Infrastructure, who met Priyanka held a demonstration before the Bhueymau guest house. The employees alleged that they got their jobs at the behest of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi during the Lok Sabha elections but now no official of the company visits the local office. Our salaries have been reduced to 2,000-2,500 from 5,000 and the number of employees has gone down to 27 from 57, they told reporters. "We requested Priyanka Gandhi to either ensure us that the company is run properly or get us adjusted somewhere else," they said. Agency

    The controversy around Nestle's Maggi noodles has caused panic throughout the nation and it doesn't look like it will die down any time soon.

    After the initial test results by Uttar Pradesh Department of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) showed harmful levels of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and lead in Maggi, various states across India and even Bangladesh conducted tests on Maggi to find out whether the food product is safe or not.

    The controversy around Maggi has led to tests being conducted across the country.

    The entire controversy began when the UP FDA last month asked Nestle India to withdraw a batch of Maggi noodles "which were manufactured in February 2014" after it found high levels of added MSG, a taste enhancer, in the noodles and lead beyond permissible limits.
