If lessons are not learnt from administrative lapses, such accidents will happen in future: Akhilesh

The Uncut

Lucknow: Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday said if lessons are not learnt from the administrative lapse in the Hathras stampede incident, more such accidents will occur in future.
Yadav alleged that the Uttar Pradesh government was trying to escape its responsibility by making minor arrests in the stampede incident in which 121 people lost their lives.

Akhilesh Yadav said in a post on the social media platform ‘X’, “The UP government-administration wants to shirk its responsibility for the death of hundreds of people by making minor arrests to hide its failure in the ‘Hathras incident’.”

He said, “If this happens, it will mean that no one has learnt any lesson from the administrative failure in such events and such accidents will keep happening in the future as well.” He said, “The administration is needlessly arresting people who were away from the original venue with some specific intention and is preparing to hold them guilty after the arrest. These arrests are a conspiracy in themselves. There should be an immediate judicial inquiry into these arrests, so that the game of the BJP government of UP can be brought before the public.”

The SP chief also shared a letter with his post, in which Ankit Yadav, a resident of Mainpuri district, had written that his father (Ramladaite Yadav) has been wrongly implicated in the stampede incident and his father has no connection with the incident.

The Uttar Pradesh government constituted a three-member judicial commission headed by a retired high court judge to probe the Hathras stampede and is also probing the possibility of a conspiracy behind the stampede at the religious gathering.
