UP CM Yogi Adityanath must be sacked for 'shielding' rape accused: Congress

UP CM Yogi Adityanath must be sacked for 'shielding' rape accused: Congress

"Our government will not compromise on this issue, no matter how influential the accused is, he will not be spared", UP Chief Minister Adityanath told reporters here.

"Naari Virodhi (anti-woman) Adityanath has not only utterly failed in his constitutional duties as the Chief Minister and abused the oath of office but also played an important protagonist in safeguarding the interests of the rape accused BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar", he added. The Chief Minister had also made a decision to expel two MLAs from Unnao. "The party has to suffer the effect of this decision".

The LGP president said the way the BJP leadership tried to defend the main rape accused in Unnao case has amply demonstrated that the party is no different from its predecessor Samajwadi Party regime.




The victim reportedly said, "I want strict action to be taken against him and he should be given severe punishment". "If this is the stand you are repeatedly taking, then we will be forced to observe in our order that "law and order has collapsed in the state".

The four-time lawmaker and his brothers allegedly gang-raped the girl in Unnao - who attempted suicide outside Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath's residence in Lucknow on Sunday - and are also accused in the custodial death of the victim's father.

The teen had accused the MLA of raping her in June past year. "The real culprit of Unnao's victim, who was raped reportedly in June 2017, and who pleaded at the doorstep of the BJP CM even attempting self-immolation is no one but the Chief Minister and he should immediately be sacked", said Surjewala. The 2nd is in rioting, in which 4 people have been taken into custody. On April 9, he died in hospital.
