Criminals now beg for their lives, says UP CM Adityanath
Lucknow/Unnao/Rae Bareli (UP), Apr 25 (PTI) Criminals in Uttar Pradesh would walk around with their heads held high but now they hang placards around their necks begging for their lives, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said on Tuesday while campaigning for the urban local body elections.
Adityanath addressed elections rallies in Lucknow, Unnao and Rae Bareli ahead of the polls, scheduled to take place in two phases on May 4 and May 11.
Addressing an election rally in Rae Bareli, Adityanath said, "BJP ki ek hi yukti, pradesh ko dilai mafia se mukti (The BJP has only one solution which has rid the sate of criminals)'. The mafia are begging for mercy to lead regular lives and earn livelihood by honest means due to zero tolerance against crime." He also took a dig at the previous regimes, saying people associated with a particular party would brandish country-made pistols while the youths now are working on smartphones and tablets.
