Addressing a pro-CAA rally in Kanpur, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday warned that those raising the ‘Azadi’ slogans during protests will be charged with sedition in his state. "If anyone will raise slogans of Azadi in the name of protest, it will amount to sedition and the government will take strict action. It can't be accepted. People can't be allowed to conspire against India from Indian soil", he said. The chief minister also targeted the opposition saying they lacked the courage to hold protests, and was using the women and children as 'shields'. Yogi Adityanath said the women do not know what they are protesting against, and they are being made to organise dharnas while the men are sleeping at home.
