Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh): Just before the start of the brief Monsoon Session of Uttar Pradesh Legislature, MLAs of the Samajwadi Party on Thursday held a protest against the Yogi Adityanath-led government outside the state Assembly over the issue of unemployment.
Taking a stand over the issue, party chief Akhilesh Yadav said, ‘the government needs to answer the queries on various issues like unemployment and law and order situation.’
प्रदेश में कोरोना से दो मंत्रियों की जान जाने के बाद भी भाजपा सरकार सिर्फ़ राजनीति में उलझी है. टेस्टिंग और इलाज का हाल बहुत ही बुरा है. जनता का काम-व्यापार, नौकरी-रोज़गार सब निम्नतम स्तर पर है अगर कुछ उच्चतम स्तर पर है तो वो है अपराध.

The protesters were heard sloganeering and holding placards questioning the state government when will the youths get the jobs in the state. Some of the protesters also alleged that the BJP government in the state is practicing corruption after coming to power.
Party members of both houses of the legislature staged a protest in front of the statue of former prime minister Chaudhary Charan Singh, holding banners against the state government.
Speaking to media, protesters said that “Uttar Pradesh is currently under ‘Jungle Raj.’ Incidents like murder, loot, rape, and kidnapping are taking place daily, and it appeared that criminals had no fear of law”.
The three-day monsoon session of the Uttar Pradesh assembly is underway despite the spread of the coronavirus in the state. The assembly administration is taking all the precautions to prevent an outbreak of the virus in the assembly.
