FIR against Cong leaders in UP poster war

The FIRs have been lodged by the police at Hazratganj and Hasanganj police station

The Congress on Saturday had put up posters in Lucknow, highlighting the criminal cases lodged against Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Maurya and BJP leaders Sangeet Som, Suresh Rana, Radha Mohan Das Agarwal, Sanjiv Baliyan, Umesh Malik and Sadhvi Prachi.

The posters were apparently in response to the posters put by the Yogi Adityanath government against 57 anti-CAA protesters in Lucknow which generated a huge controversy.

“The posters were put up by our workers and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath is a part of the Legislative Assembly, but he thinks he is a ‘judge’ even though he is one of the accused in instigating riots, so he should put up his posters first,” said Ajay Kumar Lallu, Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee (UPCC) chief.

He said that BJP leaders who were booked in heinous crimes should also be exposed.

“BJP leaders like Sangeet Som, Suresh Rana, Sadhvi Prachi, Umesh Malik, and Sanjeev Balyan are all accused in the 2013 Muzaffarnagar riots. Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya, in his affidavit submitted during the Lok Sabha Elections, has admitted that he is accused in 11 cases, including riots. We could not put up all names due to the paucity of space, but that does not take away from the issue,” he said.

The poster war in Uttar Pradesh began on March 5 when the Lucknow administration put up 100 hoardings to name and shame 57 anti-CAA protesters.

Meanwhile, state minister Suresh Rana whose picture was also published in the poster, said, “It seems that Congress is rattled over the action taken by the Yogi government on the rioters who have damaged public and private property. The Congress leaders, who seek proof of the Balakot Air Strike and visit the families of rioters, are questioning us on the law and order issue. This explains the kind of politics thy practice.”
