Asaduddin Owaisi wondered if BJP government in UP would live up to its Constitutional duty to protect the right to life which is the fundamental right.
HYDERABAD (IANS) — AIMIM President and Lok Sabha MP Asaduddin Owaisi on Wednesday said Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath showed his callousness by campaigning in Telangana instead of consoling the family of the police officer shot dead by ‘gau-rakshaks’ in his state.
“This shows his callousness and complete disregard to what is happening in his state,” said the Hyderabad MP.
Yogi was in Telangana on Wednesday on the second leg of campaigning for Bharatiya Janata Party candidates in the Assembly elections.
“I hope people of Uttar Pradesh will realize what a callous, reckless and irresponsible CM they have got. I also hope UP police will also realize that when one of their officers is shot dead, the CM is not there to grieve with his family, but doing election tourism in Telangana,” Owaisi told reporters.
Police Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh was shot dead during the violence by a mob in Bulandshahr after the discovery of alleged cow carcasses on Monday.
When asked about statement of a top UP police officer that there was a conspiracy behind the killing, Owaisi said it was a conspiracy hatched and supported by Yogi.
“The conspiracy was hatched and supported by him. Let him say this because the accused were from Bajrang Dal, which is a sister organization of RSS and Yogi is part of Sangh Pariwar. Prime Minister Modi is also part of Sangh Pariwar. Your sister organization has killed a man in uniform. Will you stop your sister organization,” he asked.
Owaisi said this monster was creation of Sangh Pariwar. “This Frankenstein is out of their control. Muslims and Dalits were targetted and now people in uniform are being targeted,” he said.
The MP wondered if BJP government in UP would live up to its Constitutional duty to protect the right to life which is the fundamental right.
Bajrang Dal’s Yogesh Raj still at large
Meanwhile, family of slain Uttar Pradesh Police Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh met Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Thursday, even as the main conspirator of the mayhem, Bajrang Dal’s Yogesh Raj, continues to evade an arrest.
Adityanath told the bereaved family that his government was with them in their hour of tragedy and would always remain by them, an official told IANS.
Although the prime accused — Bajrang Dal’s district coordinator — is still at large, the police have arrested four others named by Yogesh Raj in an FIR alleging cow slaughter.
“It is now proved beyond doubt that the police is deliberately not taking any action against the Bajrang Dal leader as they have connections with the BJP” Vaibhav Maheshwari, the state spokesman of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) told IANS.
