LUCKNOW || Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Singh on Thursday said that the Yogi Adityanath-led government in Uttar Pradesh was getting jittery about his frequent exposes of it being a casteist government who has no control over law and order, was slapping one case after another on him.
Addressing a press conference in the state capital, Singh added, that this however would not deter him rom raising the voice of the common man and the marginalised sections of the society.
"When I spoke of the atrocities being committed on the Dalits, backwards, Brahmins, they filed 10 cases against me one after the other" he said while adding that the Yogi government of the state was acting with full political malice, flouting the law and the Constitution and targeting its political opponents.
He also said that at the moment when he was addressing the media, there is an agitation going on in Ballia in which a youth of Rajbhar society was brutally killed by taking them to the police station, where he was brutally beaten and a demand for money made from him. The conditions across the state have become frightening and unacceptable, he added.
Sanjay Singh points out that he has received a police notice for him to appear before it on August 27. This notice he said was signed and issued on August 27 but posted on August 31 and received by his office on September 3.
He wondered aloud how he could be present before the police in a retrospective manner! He further pointed out that had the case been urgent, in times of modern technology, he could have been called to the police station by a call, a message or a WhatsApp.
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader said that the Yogi government should not try and scare him. I follow the law and the Constitution, these threats of notices, cases and jail cannot deter me from the call of duty, he mused.
