Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was in Gorakhpur on Saturday where he addressed the party workers but in a surprising event that has raised some eyebrows, was welcomed on stage by Nautanwa MLA (Independent) Amanmani Tripathi, accused of murdering his wife. The incident came as a surprise for many and raised a few eyebrows as well because of the strong stance Adityanath has maintained against those who play with law.

The act didn’t go well with some party workers according to a report by The Indian Express. BJP claimed that he was there on government’s invitation. “BJP’s programme was at the hotel where the CM address party workers. We did not invite Amanmani there,” BJP’s Gorakhpur Mahanagar president Rahul Srivastava was quoted as saying in the report. Another BJP MLA was quoted saying that all the local MLAs from Gorakhpur were invited and so was Amanmani Tripathi.
