BJP MP complains of misbehaviour by UP police
New Delhi: BJP member Yogi Adityanath Thursday complained of misbehaviour by Uttar Pradesh policemen, who removed him forcibly from a train compartment last evening, prompting Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar to call for a factual report on the matter.
The Speaker allowed Adityanath to raise the issue soon after the Lok Sabha assembled for the day.
He told the House that some plainclothesmen entered the coupe he was travelling in the Vaishali Express and pulled him out of the compartment "like a criminal".
He claimed that some men in uniform came a few minutes later and detained him at Ghaziabad Railway station for more than three hours.
Adityanath said the incident happened at 7:30 pm last evening and Senior Superintendent of Police, Ghaziabad, informed him at 10:30 pm that he has been held to prevent him from proceeding to Ambedkar Nagar, where a Hindu religious leader was murdered.
"I was pulled out like a criminal. Even my identity card of Member of Parliament was snatched. Is this the way to treat an MP. I seek your protection," he said.
The Speaker asked the government to send a factual report on the incident.
