Don’t take law in your own hands: Akhilesh
Lucknow: In the backdrop of violence indulged
in by Samajwadi Party workers immediately after assembly poll
victory, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav on Friday
warned partymen, specially youths, of stern action in case
they take law in their own hands.
The chief minister, while meeting people and party
workers at his official residence here, said those not
adhereing to party directives would be shown the door.
According to Samajwadi Party spokesman Rajendra
Chaudhary, the chief minister warned strict action would be
initiated against all those misusing power and taking law
in their hands.
The chief minister, who met a cross section of people
including old, physically challenged and women who complained
of harassment by musclemen and not getting ration for the past
five years, directed the officials present to probe the
matters and take immediate steps to redress their problems.
He also said no official shall humiliate the people and
warned corruption would not be tolerated.
The chief minister asked the officials to check tax
evasion so as to help in development works.
