Maharashtra Power Minister Nitin Raut Monday demanded imposition of President’s rule in Uttar Pradesh in wake of atrocities against women and Dalits. Raut is also president of AICC’s Scheduled Caste department.
In a memorandum to UP Governor Anandiben Patel, Raut said heinous crimes against Dalits and women, including rape and murder, have increased in UP during CM Yogi Adityanath’s tenure.
“Whenever complaints of atrocities are lodged at police stations, no FIRs are registered. Police…refuse to record statements of victims or witnesses and filing of chargesheet is deliberately delayed,” he alleged.
