UP Elections 2017: According to Raj Bhawan sources Uttar Pradesh governor Ram Naik on Sunday has written to Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav asking for the reasons for retaining rape accused minister Gayatri Prajapati in his Cabinet. Prajapati was booked at the behest of the Supreme Court in the cases of alleged rape of a minor girl and alleged gangrape of her mother. According to the latest reports, a look-out circular has been issued against him and 6 others involved in the case. The UP CM has been targetted for going soft on the issue leading the opposition parties to attack him over the lax law and order situation in the state as well as rampant wrongdoing by the Samajwadi Party supporters.
