The former chief minister of Uttar Pradesh and Samajwadi Party (SP) chief, Akhilesh Yadav, termed Uttar Pradesh state as ‘hatya pradesh’ in BJP’s ruling. While speaking to news agency ANI, Yadav said that the state has become deprived of law and order, along with irresponsible behaviour in bringing culprits to justice. “There is no law and order in Uttar Pradesh. I have earlier said that the state has become ‘hatya pradesh’. The criminals have been given free hands from the government. There is no prosecution against the culprits. How will justice be ensured when the government itself is saving the criminals?” Yadav was quoted as saying by ANI while speaking on killing of latest police encounter alleged victim, Pushpendra Yadav.
Earlier this week, the Samajwadi Party (SP) supremo, Akhilesh Yadav, took a jibe at the Uttar Pradesh police department for creating fear among the citizens of the state. In a sharp attack on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led government in the state, the former chief minister accused the state police of starting “police lynching” in the state. “Which Ram Raj is going on in UP? This is not Ram Raj but Nathuram Raj. With mob lynching, police lynching have also started in the state,” alleged the former chief minister of UP, quoted TOI.
The SP chief paid a visit to the family of the victim of the encounter, Pushpendra Yadav.
