Lashing out the incumbent Yogi Adityanath-led Uttar Pradesh government, Samajwadi Party alleged that government is unable to handle the law and order situation and demanded imposition of President's rule in the state.
“The UP CM Yogi Adityanath is murdering the law and order in the state himself. The entire government has surrendered to the criminals. Yesterday a video went viral in which CM Yogi can be heard saying that he is afraid of Ballia now. Why are you afraid of Ballia now? Because your goons are murdering Dalits. The UP CM is now fearing goons, the CM should tell from which party the accused belonged to in the Ballia incident. I think now the Presidents’ rule should be imposed in the state,” Samajwadi Party Spokesperson and MLC, Sunil Singh Sajan said.
