New Delhi: The remarks were made at a conclave organised by a private news channel. “Everyone is equal before the law and according to the Supreme Court, no one can be arrested without evidence, and investigation is underway.
“We will not arrest anyone on allegations. But yes, if someone is guilty, he will also not be spared irrespective of who he is,” he added.
On being asked about the Opposition’s claims that the ruling BJP is trying to shield Union Minister Ajay Mishra Teni’s son, Ashish Mishra who is accused of mowing down farmers during the Lakhimpur Kheri protest on October 3, the UP CM replied, “There is no such video. We have issued numbers, and if anyone has evidence, they can upload it. All will be crystal clear. There will be no injustice with anyone. No one will be allowed to take the law in his hand but no action will be taken under any pressure.”
Attacking the opposition, Adityanath said, “The priority of the government is to maintain peace and harmony. Many faces among those who wanted to go to Kheri are behind the incident. However, things will become clear after investigation.”
