New Delhi: Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister or Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav has been caught on tape slamming an elderly government doctor a hospital in Kannauj where he paid a visit to meet victims injured in a road accident. At least 21 people had died and several were injured when a double-decker bus burst into flames after colliding with a truck on Friday.

Akhilesh lashed out at the doctor when he tried to intervene while the patients were telling the SP leader that they have not received any compensation from the government so far. "You don't speak. You are a government man, I know. You could be from BJP or RSS. You cannot take the government's side. You don't have to explain anything to me," the SP leader can be heard telling the doctor.
