Prime News, National (Lucknow), July 12:- Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Monday triggered a huge row, saying he has no trust over the action of state police and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government. The Samajwadi Party chief made the statement while referring to the arrest of two terrorists linked with Al-Qaeda backed terror group.
“I can’t trust the actions of the Uttar Pradesh police and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government in the state,” Akhilesh Yadav told reporters in response to a question.
The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party was quick to hit back at Akhilesh Yadav. UP Minister Mohsin Raza described Akhilesh’s remark as ‘unfortunate’.
“One can only expect such a statement from Samajwadi Party. Akhilesh Yadav trusts terrorists, but not the police of his state. The morale of the UP Police has witnessed a boost under the Yogi government,” Raza told the media. (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
