New Delhi: Samajwadi Party (SP) Chief and former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav lashed out at the law and order situation in the state after miscreants attacked Azad Samaj Party president Chandrashekhar Azad ‘Ravan’ in Deoband area of Saharanpur district.
SP chief condemned the attack on the Bhim Army chief and alleged Yogi government for protecting criminals.
“The murderous attack on Mr. Chandrashekhar Azad, National President of Azad Samaj Party in Deoband, Saharanpur, by criminals protected by power is highly condemnable and cowardly act. When the people’s representatives are not safe in the BJP rule, then what will happen to the general public? Jungle Raj in UP!,” tweeted Akhilesh Yadav.
सहारनपुर के देवबंद में आज़ाद सामाज पार्टी के राष्ट्रीय अध्यक्ष श्री चन्द्रशेखर आज़ाद पर सत्ता संरक्षित अपराधियों के द्वारा जानलेवा हमला घोर निंदनीय एवं कायरतापूर्ण कृत्य है।
बीजेपी राज में जब जनप्रतिनिधि ही सुरक्षित नहीं तो आम जनता का क्या होगा?
यूपी में जंगलराज!
