After Saharanpur violence Yogi govt has lost people's trust: Akhilesh Yadav

Former UP chief minister Akhilesh Yadav, on Wednesday, once again took aim at Yogi Adityanath-led Bharatiya Janata Party government over deteriorating law and order of the state alleging that the state government has lost the trust of people as far as Saharanpur incident is concerned.

"Now media should highlight the truth of Saharnpur violence," Akhilesh said and added, "In my regime, media used to highlight each and every incident along with my photograph. Now time has come and journalists should telecast Saharanpur violence with present chief minister's picture," he said.

The entire Media barring a few is sold out to the establishment at the Centre and journalism has lost trust, ethics and devoid of morality by indulging in biased, prejudiced and selective reporting

It's not like that crime incidents are not occurring during present regime, but the fact is that the same are not being telecast.

On May 5, violence erupted in Shabbirpur village of Saharanpur district after Dalits objected to loud music being played by Thakurs at a procession.

A Thakur man died and 25 Dalit homes were charred.
