Trinamool Congress (TMC) MP Mahua Moitra on Thursday slammed Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Aditya Nath over gangster-turned-politician Atiq Ahmad’s son Asad’s encounter. Calling the UP CM by his real name ‘Ajay Bisht’, Moitra recalled his ‘gaadi palat jaata hai’ (car can flip) remark during gangster Vikas Dubey’s encounter – where he was shot dead after a police vehicle carrying the gangster overturned.
According to Hindustan Times Report, TMC MP said during a press briefing. “Vikas Dubey was brought from Gujarat to Meerut and in connection with that, CM of UP Mr. Ajay Bisht had said ‘gaadi palat jaata hai’ which means cars can overturn. So, the other name for Mr. Ajay Bisht was ‘Mr. Thok Do’. Because even when he was an MP, and as a CM, he would like to tell his police and law and order to ‘Thok Do’ which means finish them off,” the
Further slamming the CM, Moitra said, “So this complete lawlessness, jungle raj – without resorting to the rule of law, encounter killings have always flourished under the gentleman and continue to do so. So I hope the people of India will see this for what it is.”
“Why do we have a constitution? Why did we become independent? Because we wanted to live under the framework of a rule of law. So when you have a CM or HM saying that it is okay if someone died, then you are basically pointing a finger at the constitution – which is basically what the BJP is doing day after day,” Moitra added.
