Uttar Pradesh state transport bus set ablaze by a woman protestor demanding separate Purvanchal state

A woman named Vandana Raghuvanshi, who claimed to be the National President of Purvanchal State Janandolan, fighting for a separate Purvanchal State in Uttar Pradesh, set a Volvo bus ablaze in Lucknow on Wednesday. Police reached the spot and immediately took the woman into custody. No casualties have been reported.

Vandana Raghuvanshi entered the bus, poured petrol on her seat and set it on fire. While no one was hurt in the incident, the act has cost a loss of Rs. 50 lakh to the state. Raghuvanshi has now been taken into custody.

Vandana, extremely angered by the State police said that everytime the PM is in Uttar Pradesh and the Purvanchal State Janandolan wants to meet him to express their demands she is put on house arrest by the police authorities.

On Wednesday morning, at about 10:30 am, the Varanasi bound UP state transport bus was parked in the depot when it was set ablaze. It created a panic-like situation and the authorities took about half an hour to douse the fire.

Vandana, while talking to the police said that the Prime Minister often talks of a developed Nation, but until every small town or sector is developed the nation cannot be considered developed. She furthered that Purvanchal should be given a separate state status and Kashi should be made the capital of the State.

While the police have started probing the case, Vandana Raghuvanshi asserted that she would continue with her agitation until her demands are not met.
