Akhilesh Yadav was stopped as per request by the University: CM Yogi defends action after Yadav’s ‘detention’ allegations

"Akhilesh Yadav had visited the Kumbh recently, this visit to attend a political event was prevented as per the request by the University as it was slated to create law and order situation due to violence between the student organisations", UP CM Yogi Adityanath stated.

Samajwadi Party supremo Akhilesh Yadav was today reportedly stopped at the Lucknow airport by security officials from visiting Prayagraj and participating in the student union program slated to be held at the Allahabad University. UP CM Yogi Adityanath has now come out and defended his government’s move to stop Yadav from addressing the student union function.

Yogi contended that the Samajwadi Party chief was stopped from visiting the city of Prayagraj because his government had inputs that there might arise a problem of law and order in the city on Akhilesh’s visit there. He referred that the University itself had requested him that the Akhilesh visit could cause a dispute among the warring student organizations here and the law and order situation might get worsened. In such a situation, the government stopped him from going to Allahabad University.

Akhilesh Yadav was stopped at the Lucknow airport from where he was supposed to board a flight to Prayagraj and address a student union organisation at Allahabad University there. The former UP CM was headed to Allahabad University where his party’s students’ wing, the Samajwadi Party Chhatrasabha, leads the student’s union.

Yadav went ahead to claim that Yogi Adityanath is terrified and hence stopped him from participating in the student union event. BSP chief and Akhilesh’s former foe-turned-friend Mayawati has also joined in slamming the UP government.

However, a letter by the University administration, addressed to the personal secretary of the SP chief was accessed by Republic TV which mentions clearly that the University administration had decided not to allow political leaders to address events inside the campus due to past instances of violence. The letter was sent yesterday.

UP CM Yogi Adityanath also mentioned that Yadav was stopped as per the request by the University. He added that the grand festival of Kumbh is going on in the city of Prayagraj where Yadav had recently visited to have Darshan and the holy dip at the Triveni Sangam. However, his visit to the University was a political visit and his government had received input that it might cause law and order situation.

Another letter by the district magistrate of Prayagraj accessed by Republic also mentioned that the university administration had requested not to allow any political leaders to address events in the campus due to past instances of violence and law and order situations. He had instructed police officials to take steps to prevent the political event being addressed by Akhilesh Yadav.

The Prayagrajj SSP Nitin Tiwari claimed that necessary approvals were not sought by the Samajwadi Party chief from the University administration and hence he was stopped.
