With attack on Swiss couple, Akhilesh Yadav slams Yogi govt; heres what he said
Amidst shock and reactions on the attack on the Swiss couple in Agra, former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav questioned as to where is the law and order in state. He also attacked Yogi Adityanath government and alleged that there has been an unprecedented rise in crime and loot in the state.
Yadav questioned the government if it had succeeded in ensuring the safety of the public. He also cited past incidents of murder and dacoity in Uttar Pradesh and asked the incumbent CM why the accused had still not been identified and apprehended.
“Have the accused been identified in the Sitapur triple-murder case? How can a dacoity occur at a retired judge’s place in Lucknow? A BSP candidate was murdered in Allahabad after getting good votes. There was a lathi-charge in the BHU. How many incidents shall I quote?” the former chief minister said.
A group of youngsters in Fatehpur Sikri harassed and chased a Swiss couple and left them severely injured with a broken skull, a fractured arm, and hearing impairment.
The Samajwadi president also took a swipe at Yogi, asking where his ‘anti-Romeo squad’ had gone. “A couple visiting Fatehpur Sikri was beaten when they tried to click a selfie.”
In its 2017 election manifesto for Uttar Pradesh, the BJP had promised to create Anti-Romeo Dals (or squads) near colleges to “ensure the safety of college-going girls” and “check eve-teasing”.
