Launching a scathing attack on the BJP for patronizing goons, UPCC president Mr. Ajay Kumar Lallu on Monday said that only a high-level probe could establish how the ruling party leaders including its MLAs are hobnobbing with the goons, who are now killing the cops without any hesitation.
“There is evidence in the public domain now where the history-sheeter Vikas Dubey is admitting his association with the BJP leaders including its two MLAs during his interrogation by the STF in the past. The Congress’ stand is vindicated that the ruling party is the real custodian of goons in the state, and not of the people,” said Mr. Lallu in a statement.
“From day one, the Congress was of the view that without any support from the ruling party, a history-sheeter like Vikas Dubey cannot roam so freely. He killed the cops. The martyrdom of eight brave cops will prove to be the last nail in the Yogi government’s coffin,” said Mr. Lallu further.
Demanding a high-level probe, Mr. Lallu said that the people of the state have the right to know how a history-sheeter was carrying out his activities in the state, all with the support of the ruling party leaders including BJP MLAs.
“Uttar Pradesh is in the grip of BJP brand of Jungle Raj, where they allow their own goons to kill the cops. The common people have valid reasons to worry about their own safety and security. Congress will fight for their safety and security against all odds,” added Mr. Lallu.
