After a police constable was killed by a stone-pelting mob yesterday in Ghazipur, while returning from PM Modi’s rally, SP chief Akhilesh Yadav took a jibe at UP CM Yogi Adityanath saying his only motive is ‘thok do.’
Although, UP Police has arrested 11 people in connection with the murder and an FIR has been registered with 32 persons being named in it, yet the questions over law and order situation will be raised.
Former UP CM Akhilesh Yadav said, “Ye ghatna isliye ghati hai kyunki CM sadan mein ho ya manch pe ho unki ek hi bhasha hai ‘thok do’. Kabhi police ko nahi samjh aata kise 'thokna' hai kabhi janta ko nahi samajh aata kise 'thokna' hai.”
