Not afraid, socialists will scold
The Samajwadi Party has attacked the Yogi government through social media. Said that the arrest of SP MLAs who are raising the voice of the rights of farmers driving a tractor outside the Lucknow Assembly to protest against the atrocities on farmers by the BJP government, not buying paddy at MSP is a murder of democratic rights. It is downright reprehensible. Socialists will not fear, they will stand firm.
