Mayawati slams SP chief Akhilesh Yadav for meeting jailed party MLA

In a tweet in Hindi, Mayawati said, "The sharp reaction over the Samajwadi Party chief going to the Azamgarh jail and meeting imprisoned party MLA Ramakant Yadav to express sympathy is natural. This shows the general belief that the SP guards these types of criminal elements."

Highlights

  • Mayawati slammed Party chief Akhilesh Yadav for meeting a party MLA inside Azamgarh jail
  • Mayawati accused Yadav of not meeting the party’s jailed Muslim leaders
  • She was apparently referring to Yadav’s visit to the jail in May when he skipped meeting Azam Khan

BSP president Mayawati on Wednesday slammed Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav for meeting a party MLA inside Azamgarh jail and alleged that it shows the party protects criminals.

She also targeted Yadav for not offering the same support to the party's jailed Muslim leaders. Yadav had visited the Azamgarh jail on Monday to meet party MLA Ramakant Yadav who is lodged there in a 20-year-old rioting case.

In a tweet in Hindi, Mayawati said, "The sharp reaction over the Samajwadi Party chief going to the Azamgarh jail and meeting imprisoned party MLA Ramakant Yadav to express sympathy is natural. This shows the general belief that the SP guards these types of criminal elements."

Mayawati accused Yadav of not meeting the party’s jailed Muslim leaders. "Also, is it unreasonable for various organisations and common people to ask the SP chief why he does not go to jail to meet Muslim leaders when he has himself accused the BJP government in UP of implicating and putting SP leaders in jail in fake cases," she tweeted.

She was apparently referring to Yadav’s visit to Azamgarh jail in May when he skipped meeting Samajwadi Party's then jailed leader Azam Khan and met other party workers lodged there in connection with a case related to the assembly elections.
