Lucknow: Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav has won accolades on social media after a picture of him helping an accident on Agra-Lucknow Expressway victim went viral.

The accident took place near Tala Sarai village in Unnao's Hasanganj on Tuesday when a car reportedly overturned while trying to save a stray animal. Those travelling in the car are believed to be ISKON devotees.

Two people injured in the accident were rushed to Lucknow while one was admitted to Community Health Centre (CHC) in Hasanganj.

Akhilesh Yadav, who was on his way back from Agra, on reaching the accident spot ordered his fleet to halt and helped the accident victims immediately. He also directed his security officers to take the injured to the hospital in one of his convoy vehicles and make all the necessary arrangements for their treatment.

Locals who were present at spot said that the former CM's good gesture helped in getting timely assistance to the injured who were bleeding profusely.

Akhilesh also tweeted about the incident and wrote, "We gave all the possible help to the ISKON devotees who met with an accident in an attempt to save a stray animal. There should be proper arrangements to make Expressway free from animals."




Akhilesh had gone to Agra on Tuesday to meet 8 acid attack victims who are employed at the Sheroes Hangout cafe, a part of which was allegedly razed by the Agra Municipal Corporation last week for the widening of Fatehabad road under the smart city project.
