People of UP may have given a good bye to BSP and unaccepted the government of Congress and BJP but incidence and aftershocks after choosing of Samajwadi Party would have given a thunder shock to the people and may have even put them in a confusion whether they have chosen a right candidate or right government or not.

Ever since Samajwadi party has won the elections complains and incidence of there “Goonda acts” are started coming in limelight.

 The very first one was on 6th March on the day of declaration of result itself and this was the killing of a small boy during firing of shots in victory by the SP workers which mistakenly got struck on a small boy who died. This was an incidence of Sambhal where a 12 year boy was killed during celebratory firing.

The second incidence came from Jhansi where SP candidates assaulted the journalist present at the counting centre and later locked them in the rooms for many hours.

The third incidence came from Sitapur where SP workers tried to put independent candidate’s house on fire, these workers are said to be supporters of SP MLA Jeena Babu, though two were arrested by police,  reports also says that they even open fire at the suppoters of that independent candidate in which 4 people were injured.

On all these incidence party’s youth leader Akhilesh Yadav said that strict actions will be taken against all those who are responsible for the same and he further issued strict instructions for the party workers on the same.
