Anti-incumbency in UP, Yogi Adityanath govt will not retain power: Chhattisgarh CM Baghel

New Delhi: Ahead of the Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel said that there is anti-incumbency in the state and added that the Yogi Adityanath-led government will not retain power.

“There is anti-incumbency in the state. From farmers, youth, Scheduled community to traders, everyone is upset with the Chief Minister…Yogi government will not retain power,” Baghel said on his recent visit to Uttar Pradesh.

Earlier, Baghel slammed the Uttar Pradesh government for stopping the Opposition leaders to visit Lakhimpur Kheri.

Addressing the ‘Kisan Nyay’ rally at a ground in the Rohania area in Uttar Pradesh’s Varanasi, Baghel said, “I used to think that saints are not afraid of anything but Yogi Aditynath is coward. He is coward as he stopped Priyanka Gandhi Vadra from visiting the Lakhimpur Kheri. I was stopped at the Lucknow airport. I told them that I was there to meet Priyanka Gandhi but still was not allowed to exit the airport. But we had never stopped Yogi ji.”

The Chhattisgarh Chief Minister was accompanied by Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, MP Deepender Singh Hooda, and other party leaders at the rally.

On October 5, Baghel claimed that he was not allowed to leave the Lucknow airport, where he arrived to meet Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra at Uttar Pradesh’s Sitapur while the latter was detained at the PAC compound in Sitapur. 

As many as eight people including four farmers died in the Lakhimpur Kheri incident on October 3. Ashish Mishra, who is the son of Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Ajay Mishra Teni, was arrested after 12 hours of interrogation by the Crime Branch of Uttar Pradesh Police, in connection with the case. Two accused identified as Luvkush and Ashish Pandey were also arrested earlier in connection with the incident.
