Unnao: Opposition parties in Uttar Pradesh targeted the Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh over women’s safety after a 23-year-old woman from Unnao, who was set on fire on Thursday by the men accused of raping her, died at a hospital in Delhi. While former CM and Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav sat on a dharna outside the state assembly in Lucknow demanding the resignation of the CM, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra visited the family of the victim in Unnao and said “there is no place for women” in the state.
Akhilesh Yadav demanded the resignation of Yogi Adityanath and the state’s top cop, and called it a black day for the country. “Till the day UP CM, state home secretary and DGP don’t resign, justice will not be done. This is a black day. It is not the first such incident under this BJP government. The CM had said in this very assembly, ‘apradhiyon ko thok diya jayega’ they could not save the life of a daughter.”
