Yogi Adityanath Promises Exemplary Punishment To Those Who Assault Women
Lucknow: Amid nationwide outrage following back-to-back incidents of atrocities against women in UP’s Hathras and Balrampur, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Friday promised exemplary punishment to those who even think of disrespecting women.
Yogi took to his Twitter handle to write: “Destruction is certain of those who even think of harming the honour and self-respect of mothers and sisters in UP. The UP government is committed towards the safety of women of the state.”
उत्तर प्रदेश में माताओं-बहनों के सम्मान-स्वाभिमान को क्षति पहुंचाने का विचार मात्र रखने वालों का समूल नाश सुनिश्चित है।
इन्हें ऐसा दंड मिलेगा जो भविष्य में उदाहरण प्रस्तुत करेगा।
आपकी @UPGovt प्रत्येक माता-बहन की सुरक्षा व विकास हेतु संकल्पबद्ध है।
यह हमारा संकल्प है-वचन है।
