Chandrashekhar Azad said because atrocities on Dalits are increasing in the rural areas of the state. He accused the Yogi Adityanath government of liaising with the opposition and targeting his party and expressed concern over the law and order in UP.
Panchayat elections are likely to be held in March-April 2021. The tenure of the current panchayats will end this month. Chandrasekhar’s political organization is known as Azad Samaj Party. The Bhima Army chief had come to meet the District Magistrate of Azamgarh over the alleged delay in providing medical aid to a recently killed Dalit village head. Earlier, he also had an argument with the policemen regarding the matter. He said, “People should be given due respect in a democracy. My treatment of them proves that the authorities are threatening the people.”
Attacking the BJP, Chandrasekhar said that Union Home Minister Amit Shah is participating in roadshows and election rallies in West Bengal, while the winter session of Parliament has been canceled on the pretext of the corona virus. He said, “The central government is doing this to avoid opposition questions, as they do not have the answers to give them.”
