Lucknow: Concerned with the rise in road accidents in Uttar Pradesh, state government has decided to drop all charges against Unnao MLA Kuldeep Sengar. The decision was taken after a speeding truck hit a car carrying the girl who had accused the MLA of rape.
The accident claimed the lives of 2 relatives of the girl and critically injured the girl and her lawyer. There was widespread criticism of the government after the accident and there were calls for immediate action. Now the government has decided to act and reduce such accidents in future.
Speaking to Faking News, a senior official of the UP Government said ,” People expected action from the government and we have acted. Dropping all charges against respected Unnao MLA should reduce truck accidents in the state drastically. This should also see a reduction in the number of custodial deaths in the state.”
“We are confident that this proactive attitude of the government will be well appreciated by the people. We are also thinking about making Mr Sengar the Home Minister after his release from the jail, to make sure such road accident causing cases don’t get registered in future”, the official went on to add.
Meanwhile, Kuldeep Sengar has expressed his full faith in the judicial process after the decision to drop the cases against him.
