Meanwhile, Ajay Kumar Lallu, President-Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee tweeted, “In order to save power, efforts are being made to suppress and burn the truth, it is responsible for the torture of daughters. Sensitivity, morality is not left in the government. President’s rule should be applicable in UP.”
