Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav lashed at the Yogi Adityanath government and said BJP government knows only one language, that of violence on Sunday.

“Ye ghatna isliye ghati hai kyunki CM sadan mein ho ya manch pe ho unki ek hi bhasha hai ‘thok do’. Kabhi police ko nahi samjh aata kise ‘thokna’ hai kabhi janta ko nahi samajh aata kise ‘thokna’ hai (This incident took place because the CM, whether he is in the assembly or on a stage, he only talks about violence. Sometimes the police doesn’t know who to beat up, other times the public doesn’t know who to beat up,” Yadav said.

Akhilesh Yadav's view came with respect to an incident that took place on Saturday when constable Suresh Vats, was on duty for Prime Minister Narendra Modi's rally in Ghazipur and was on his way back when he was attacked by a mob of protesters.  He died on the spot on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the son of the slain police constable blamed the police for his father’s death.

Venting his ire over the Uttar Pradesh Police, VK Singh, the deceased constable’s son, told ANI, “If the police are not able to protect their co-workers then what sort of protection can a common man expect from them.”

He further said that by merely giving compensation or providing a government job to the kin of the deceased is not going to curb the problems of crime and violence. “Earlier, similar incidents took place in Bulandshahr and Pratapgarh. How can the government compensate for the lost lives?” he questioned.

Congress’s chief spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala also criticised the Uttar Pradesh government. He took to his Twitter account and said.
