A 25-year-old man was recently arrested after he allegedly uploaded an “objectionable” picture of new Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, days after he took oath. The police reportedly arrested the youth in Ghazipur area of Uttar Pradesh.
According to reports, the man uploaded the picture from a fake Facebook account. The man has been identified as Badshah Abdul Razak who resides in the Professors colony of Ghazipur district. He up[loaded the picture on March 19 and circulated it the social media platforms after creating a fake identity on Facebook.
Soon after the photo was circulated online, outraged members of Yuva Yahini, a committee founded by Yogi Adityanath staged a protest demanding action against Razak. Additionally, they even allegedly had a minor confrontation with the relative of Razak who also gathered to protect him. The police officials rushed to the spot to avoid clashes and raided Razak’s house. Officials confirmed that Razak admitted to have uploaded the picture of Yogi Adityanath and circulating it on social media.
Cops even guarded the area to avoid uproar. Yogi Adityanath who succeeded Akhilesh Yadav took charge as the new UP CM after a high profile swearing ceremony that took place in Lucknow last week. 44-year-old CM known for his controversial remarks took oath in the presence of senior politicians including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Amit Shah, Rajnath Singh, Mulayam Singh Yadav and Akhilesh Yadav.
Yogi Adityanath was a “surprise” choice of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party chief Amit Shah as BJP’s chief minister for Uttar Pradesh,
