Sonbhadra Clash: UP CM Yogi Adityanath Meets Families Of Victims
A day after Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi met with the family members of the carnage victims, Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath also reached the village in Sonbhadra district to meet the family members of the victims.
Ten people were gunned down and 28 injured in a clash between Gond tribals and village head Yagya Dutt's supporters over a piece of land on Wednesday.
Adityanath met the family members of those who lost their lives in the clash.
"He will meet those injured and enquire about their health. In the afternoon, he will address a press conference at the district collectorate" an official had said before his visit.
Tensions had escalated over the incident at Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi who insisted upon visiting the victims, was on Friday, detained in Mirzapur district and prevented from going to Sonbhadra. Section 144 of the CrPC, which prohibits assembly of more than four persons in an area, had been imposed in Sonbhadra district.
The standoff ended on Saturday and Gandhi headed back to Delhi after a meeting with some Sonbhadra villagers who travelled to the Mirzapur guesthouse where she had stayed overnight, refusing an offer from local administration to furnish a personal bond and leave.
The families of the carnage victims were on Friday taken by surprise when they came to know that Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra was detained in Mirzapur, while coming to their village. They decided to walk most of the 70 km distance to Chunar guest house to meet her, reports said.
According to the Congress leaders, the residents of the Ubbha village covered the distance, mostly on foot, to meet Priyanka Gandhi at the guest house, where she was detained since Friday.
Priyanka said those who had arrested her and brought her to the Chunar guesthouse were now saying she is free to leave. I want to tell them that I have fulfilled my objective. I met the family members. I am leaving today, but I shall return, she told party workers who thronged the guesthouse.
