UP Congress slams CM’s ‘insensitivity’

Thursday, 06 December 2018 | PNS | Lucknow


Uttar Pradesh Congress fired a fresh salvo at the Yogi Adityanath government, charging the Chief Minister with being insensitive.

"It is strange that Yogi Adityanath, who during his meeting with senior officers on Tuesday night, expressed concern for cow slaughter but did not utter a word for the loss of life of an inspector and a youth in the Bulandshahr violence. This only speaks volumes about his insensitivity," UPCC general secretary Vinod Mishra in Lucknow on Wednesday.

Mishra said that due to the communal divide engineered by the Bharatiya Janata Party, incidents like Bulandshahr were happening regularly with the right wing "goons", who had no fear of law enforcing agencies, targeting innocents in the name of cow vigilantism.

Taking a dig at the Chief Minister, Mishra said, "A few hours after the Bulandshahr incident, Yogi Adityanath was inaugurating a kabaddi show and later enjoyed a sound and light show in Gorakhpur. It was more than 24 hours after the opposition parties raised the issue that the Chief  Minister woke up from his slumber and rushed to Lucknow to review the situation. However, Yogi again left for election rallies in different states on Wednesday morning, showing scant concern for the state he rules and its people. It is appalling."
