“The encounter culture of the ruthless BJP government has made some policemen cruel. The unemployed youth of UP will answer the administration who put their hands on the necks of the protesting teacher recruitment aspirants. Re-sensitizing every single policeman of UP is a big challenge for the future,” he said in a tweet posted in Hindi.
