In another alleged moral policing case, some policemen in Uttar Pradesh were found thrashing a leader of the Samajwadi Party (SP) inside a police station in Badaun. Soon after the video of UP police beating up the SP leader went viral, party spokesperson Ghanshyam Tiwari criticised Yogi Adityanath and his government in the state. Speaking to Times Now, Tiwari said, “In the past two months, ever since Yogi Ji became the chief minister, Uttar Pradesh has turned into a violent state with continuous violence either perpetrated by gundas (goons) from Hinsa Vahini or the police who are bending backwards to serve these gundas.”

“Right from MPs and MLAs of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are involved and it is the testimony of the man himself who is now the CM of the state,” he said.
Even the former CM Akhilesh Yadav has recently attacked Adityanath alleging that the new UP government has failed to maintain law and order in the state. Yadav said, “There are murders, rapes, dacoities and other crimes but the state government is looking helpless.” Akhilesh was speaking at an event organised by a TV channel. He also attributed BJP’s remarkable victory in the Assembly Polls to the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) and not to the party.
The incumbent CM has faced a lot of criticism over law and order failure in the state by the opposition parties. However, giving it back, Adityanath has alleged that these opposition parties are trying to create ‘anarchy’ in some places and had also warned of strict action against those taking law and order in their hands.
