Yogi Adityanath to monitor crime through special cell

Yogi Adityanath to monitor crime through special cell

The Uttar Pradesh government on Thursday told the Allahabad high court that Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath could not be tried for the 2007 Gorakhpur riots.

Local traders also sought an audience with Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who has represented his hometown of Gorakhpur in the Lok Sabha since 1998.

The court had asked the principal secretary to appear in person on May 11 and produce all documents including the sanction given by the state government to prosecute the accused.

China will also allow wholly foreign-owned financial services firms to provide credit rating services in the Asian giant. Again, this sounds like a win but the USA has already won a WTO trade dispute against China on these payment systems.

The riots in Gorakhpur in January 2007 were sparked allegedly after a provocative speech by Adityanath, the then local MP, over the killing of a Hindu youth in clashes between Hindu and Muslim groups during a Moharram procession.

After the statement by the chief secretary, the petitioners said that they will move court again to challenge the government stand. Yogi was made an accused and was jailed. "The refusal to grant sanction is tantamount to an accused declining to be prosecuted, which has no parallel in the world", the petitioners' counsel S F A Naqvi told PTI.

He also said the state government was committed to making the "Swacch Bharat" mission a success in the state.

The Allahabad High Court on Friday said the government can not take away the right of people to eat non-vegetarian food and asked the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in the state to find a solution to the slaughter house issue before July 17. He also added that the investigating agencies have proposed to close the case. The chief secretary said the home department decided against granting permission for prosecution on this ground.

Soon after coming to power, the Yogi Adityanath government had directed administrative and police authorities to shut down or seal slaughterhouses in the State which according to it were running unlawfully or were unregistered.

"We are working with a spirit of "sabka saath, sabka vikaas" and will continue to do so", Yogi said, urging everyone not to break law.
