UP Government Withdraws Two Cases Against Chief Minister Adityanath, Four Against Deputy CM Maurya

Lucknow, March 3 (TNA) Politics and power can do strange things. This time it sounds weird as the Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath has withdrawn two cases against his own name, according to a response to an RTI filed by social activist Nutan Thakur.

According to information made available to the Lucknow-based activist by the Siddharthnagar SP's office, the state government has withdrawn two cases (मु०अ०स० 384/2004 धारा 188 आईपीसी थाना मोहाना तथा मु०अ०स० 596/2004 धारा 188 आईपीसी थाना इटवा).

Both the matter were pending in the court but as the matter was still sub-juice, the section V of the legal department of the state government moved in and as per its order of December 20, 2017, the state government withdrew the two cases.

Only a few days back, RTI had revealed that the state government had also withdrawn four cases against deputy chief minister Keshav Prasad Maurya, one being that of setting up on fire a vehicle of a cop.

The public information officer in the case of the chief minister has however refused to share the files related to the saffron-robed chief minister saying they were "individual informations of Mr Adityanath" and that they cannot be provided to the applicant under section 8(1) (J) of the RTI Act.
