Malini uploaded pictures of her shooting but was quick to delete them, condoling the death of the SP and SHO. Needless to say, she was slammed on social media.

“It could have been averted. The administration has been asking for extra power to control these people but somehow the UP government has not given them the authority to go ahead with that. So, they were waiting.” She said.

“For two months, the fight was constantly going on between the police and those people and then yesterday, it erupted in such a way that was not expected at all. Akhilesh Yadav’s government has to take care of the law and order properly which somehow has not happened.”


BJP sought to downplay Malini’s ill-timed tweets, claiming that she was “extremely sensitive” to the situation and will reach Mathura soon but insisted that the issue should not be used as a “diversion” as maintenance of law and order is the responsibility of the state government and not of the local MP.

“The chief minister has to reach there and take stock of the law and order situation,” said BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra said.
