Hitting out at the state government, SP chief Akhilesh Yadav said that it is evident from the incident that “encounter government” has had an influence on the miscreants.
“The murder of the accused in Bijnor in front of the judge in court has proven how much the 'encounter government' of the state has had an influence on the miscreants. It is meaningless to talk about the safety of the common citizen where the honorable judge has had to run away from saving his life. This is the condition of the double engine government!” his tweet reads.
