New Delhi: CPI-M General Secretary Sitaram Yechury today stated that there was a ‘jungle raj’ (lawlessness) in Uttar Pradesh keeping in mind the outrage over right-wing outfits attacking police stations in Agra.
“BJP MPs and MLAs are leading mobs to attack police stations in Uttar Pradesh. If this is not jungle raj, what is? Constitutional responsibilities,” Yechury asked on Twitter.
“We get enraged (and rightly so) when cops are attacked by stones in Kashmir. How are these BJP MPs and MLAs different when they attack police,” he asked.
Right wing activists including members of Bajrang Dal and Vishwa Hindu Parishad on Sunday attacked Agra’s Sadar Bazaar and Fatehpur Sikri police stations and roughed up policemen. The activists were led by Bharatiya Janata Party MLA from Fatehpur Sikri, Choudhary Udai Bhan Singh. They wanted the release of their party members against whom an FIR had been registered.
