In a political argument over the killings of two Sadhus in Uttar Pradesh’s Bulandshahr, which left the whole nation in shock, Uttar Pradesh’s Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has lashed out at Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut via a series of tweets, where he asked him to “handle Maharashtra, don’t bother about UP”.
Well, the killings of two Sadhus in UP blew up into a political controversy after the Shiv Sena went on the offensive about how the mob killings of two sadhus who were killed in Maharashtra’s Palghar district were communalized. Yogi Adityanath was among the BJP leaders who asked for an inquiry into the incident that took place in Palghar.
Later, Sanjay Raut had taunted CM Yogi Adityanath over the killings of two sadhus, advising him that there should be no communal politics over it like how it happened during the case of two sadhus who were killed in Maharashtra’s Palghar district. He had tweeted:
भयानक! बुलंदशहर, यूपी के एक मंदिर में दो साधुओं की हत्या, लेकिन मैं सभी से अपील करता हूं कि वे इसे सांप्रदायिक न बनाएं, जिस तरह से कुछ लोगों ने पालघर मामले में करने की कोशिश की।

“Terrible ! Killing of two saints, sadhus at a temple in Bulandshahr,UP. But I appeal to all concerned to not make it communal the way they tried to make palghar,Maharashtra incident.”
Yogi Aditynath posted a series of tweets slamming Mr.Raut over his tweet. He wrote:
“Sanjay Raut, what should we say about such ideological views, your labelling as politics the concern over the gruesome killing of saints in Palghar? Your comments, bloodsoaked in poor morals, is a reflection of your changed political colours. This is undoubtedly the gateway to appeasement,”
“There is rule of law in UP. It deals strictly with those who break the law. Prompt action was taken after the Bulandshahr killings and the accused was caught within hours. Handle Maharashtra, don’t worry about UP.”
