No riots on Eid, law and order under control: UP CM Yogi Adityanathtext_fields
Azamgarh: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said there are no riots in the state on the occasion of Eid and that is because the law and order situation is under control.
"Today, it's Eid, and there are no riots in the state. No one's commute is affected. The law & order situation is under control. There's peace & this is because everyone knows that the law treats everyone equally. This is only possible if there is a sensitive administration," said the BJP leader while speaking at an event in Azamgarh.
"Earlier people used to get scared of districts like Azamgarh but today it is on the path of development. Azamgarh is now connected to the Expressway Highway, and an airport and a university are also coming up in the district," he added.
There have been criticisms over the deteriorating law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh after the public assassination of gangster-politician Atiq Ahmed and his brother.
Adityanath said that there is no fear and anarchy in the state. "This kind of administration will become a symbol of public faith. Nuisance has turned into celebrations today."
