Not much difference between jungle rule & UP law and order: Congress

Darvesh Singh, the first woman president of the state Bar Council who was elected to the post three days ago, was shot dead at a court premises in Agra on June 12 allegedly by a lawyer who then tried to kill himself.


The Congress hit out at the Uttar Pradesh government on June 13 over the killing of the state Bar Council president, saying there was not much difference between "jungle rule" and law and order in the BJP-ruled state.

Darvesh Singh, the first woman president of the state Bar Council who was elected to the post three days ago, was shot dead at a court premises in Agra on June 12 allegedly by a lawyer who then tried to kill himself.

"Right under the nose of Ajay Singh Bisht's (Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath) government in UP, the bar council's first woman president was shot dead. There is not much difference left between jungle rule and the law and order system in BJP-ruled UP," Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala tweeted.
