Opposition wants to incite riots: Yogi on Hathras

Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath took on the Opposition on Sunday over their protests and visits to Hathras. “Those who do not like development, they want to incite ethnic and communal riots,” the Chief Minister tweeted, apparently targeting the opposition parties that have been holding protests over the issue. “It is possible to solve the biggest problems through dialogue,” another tweet by the Chief Minister read. The state police, he admitted, still has to be “sensitive and proactive” in dealing with cases linked to women. Yogi Adityanath’s government has been facing huge criticism over the police handling of the case.
