In UP, on eve of election results, officials “illegally” house arrest opposition workers, alleges Akhilesh Yadav

Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav alleged that in many districts of Uttar Pradesh, the district magistrate and the police administration are “illegally” putting workers of opposition parties under house arrest on the eve of the 2024 General Elections results so that they cannot participate in the counting of votes.

Such incidents should be stopped immediately and the “detained” people should be released immediately, Yadav said in a post on X in Hindi.

“Honourable Supreme Court, @ECISVEEP (Election Commission of India), @CEOUP (Chief Electoral Officer, Uttar Pradesh), Police Chief @dgpup @Uppolice should immediately take cognisance of the fact that in many districts of Uttar Pradesh, apart from Mirzapur, Aligarh, Kannauj, the district magistrate and the police administration are illegally putting the political workers of the opposition under house arrest (‘nazarbandh’), so that they cannot participate in the counting of votes tomorrow,” said former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister who is contesting from Kannauj Lok Sabha constituency.

“When all political parties are working peacefully, the government and administration should also not do any such unethical work which may lead to public anger,” the SP chief said.

It is hoped that such biased DM and administrative officers will be removed immediately and the counting of votes will be completed in a peaceful environment, Yadav added.
