Lucknow: UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath said on Friday that there was no remedy if someone makes up his mind to blame an outfit for everything.

The chief minister was responding to a question about clashes in Saharanpur in which a BJP MP was named as an accused and the Bulandshahr lynching case in which Hindu Yuva Vahini (HYV) activists were blamed.

“There is no remedy if someone makes up his mind that he has to blame a particular outfit. You will have to take this into consideration that the victims have already stated that the incidents were a result of dispute among themselves and no outfit was involved,” he said.

“I can say with confidence that everyone will be safe in the state without any discrimination and rule of law is the priority of the state government,” Mr Adityanath said.

Mr Adityanath recently directed the HYV workers to maintain good behaviour and not misuse its image as the BJP would suffer. Mr Adityanath formed the HYV in April 2002.

“You might not be accepting the change in UP in the past one-and-a-half month but the entire country is accepting it on law and order issue. Investment opportunities have been created and the confidence of people has grown,” he said.
