Youth says UP CM heckled him over land row

 Gorakhpur, April 4: A young man on Wednesday alleged that Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityath pushed him away when he went to petition him about a land grabbing matter. Ayush Singhal, 24, broke down in front of jourlists while recounting how Adityath literally heckled him at his ‘Jata Darbaar’ when he told him that his 22-acre land has been grabbed by legislator Amanmani Tripathi, involved in a crimil case. “I went to the Chief Minister. But instead of hearing me out, he pushed me aside and threw the file away,” Singhal alleged. He quoted Adityath as alleging that he was an “awaraa” and that no action would be taken against the legislator. Gorakhpur District Magistrate K. Vijayendra Pandian said Singhal was one of the many who had met the Chief Minister without proper papers. “The Chief Minister merely told him to come to him only after following the laid down procedures,” the officer said.
