Lucknow, April 4: Lawyer-politician Prashant Bhushan on Tuesday apologised for his remarks on Lord Krish in relation to the formation of anti-Romeo squads in Uttar Pradesh by the Yogi Adityath government. Hindu organisations are up in arms against the Swaraj Abhiyan founder after he said that he opposed the anti-Romeo squads as they violated the spirit of love and had questioned if the Uttar Pradesh government would even harass Lord Krish, whom he termed a “legendary eve teaser”.
Bhushan on Tuesday tweeted: “I realise that my tweet on Romeo squads and Krish was ippropriately phrased and unintentiolly hurt sentiments of many people. Apologize and delete it.”
Bhushan on Sunday tweeted: “Romeo loved just one lady, while Krish was a legendary eve teaser. Would Adityath have the guts to call his vigilantes anti-Krish squads?”
While a demonstration was held outside his residence in Noida, protests also took place in Pratapgarh, Firozabad and Hathras.
Police said they have stepped up vigil and would not allow anybody to take law in their hands. Security has been beefed up following a threat from a Bajrang Dal functiory in Firozabad who announced a Rs 1 lakh bounty on the head of the eminent social activist and lawyer.
City coorditor of Bajrang Dal in Firozabad Aachman Upadhya said he will give Rs 1 lakh to anyone who brings the head of Bhushan. (IANS)
