“The Samajwadi Party fears losing the Ghosi Assembly bypoll. They have stooped to such lows that they are resorting to making threats of causing physical harm to our police officers. Anarchism and hooliganism are in their DNA. This is precisely what we have been conveying to the citizens through the media time and again. As an FIR has already been registered in connection with the threat, we will take up the matter with the Election Commission, requesting a proper investigation and strict action,” Pathak added.
The deputy CM mentioned, “The FIR, too, states that the SP candidate said he would beat up the in-charge of the police outpost concerned with shoes.” “There is no place for such statements in a democracy,” Pathak added.
