You could be from RSS, BJP: Akhilesh Yadav tells govt doctor

Emergency Medical Officer Dr DS Mishra had stepped in to give a clarification while Akhilesh was interacting with the kin of bus accident victims, which irked the leader

Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav lashed out at a junior doctor of a government hospital on January 13 for interrupting him. A video of the SP leader slamming the doctor of a government hospital in Kannauj district of Uttar Pradesh is being circulated widely.

In the video, Akhilesh can be heard asking the doctor to leave the scene because he might be a member of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) or its fringe group – the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

He says in the video clip: “You are a very junior officer... a very small worker. You could be from the RSS... you could be from the BJP. You can't tell me what they are saying... you don't have to speak on behalf of the government. Step back... step further back. Go away from here.”

The confrontation took place when the former UP chief minister was at the hospital to interact with the victims of a recent bus accident. More than 20 persons died in the road accident last week. He was interacting with the kin of the victims when they begun raising questions about the compensation of Rs 20 lakh.


At that moment, Emergency Medical Officer DS Mishra had stepped in to give a clarification, which ticked off the Samajwadi Party leader.

Speaking to the media, the junior doctor explained: “I was standing there because I am their attending officer. When the patient’s family members claimed that they did not receive their compensation, I tried to clarify that they have received the cheque.”

The doctor informed that Akhilesh had asked him to leave the room despite knowing that he was on emergency duty.
