I want the Governor to wake this government up too,” Mr. Yadav told reporters after he submitted a memorandum to the Governor.“There is no district where SP workers and supporters were not targeted,” said Mr. Yadav, alleging that the State police followed “repressive policies” to victimise a “specific community.”There were some two dozen such incidents, he said.“Many innocents were killed in encounters,” he said in the memorandum.“Such a bad situation did not ever exist in the state.”last_img
