UP govt backtracks after seeking data on Brahmins with gun licenses

Aug 31, 2020 15:34 IST

The Yogi Adityanath-led government in UP had sent an unusual letter to the District Magistrates on 18th August asking them how many Brahmins have applied for and received arms licences. The letter was sent after BJP MLA from Sultanpur, Devmani Dwiwedi asked a question in the assembly related to the number of Brahmins killed in the past three years in the state.

The letter signed by Prakash Chandra Agarwal, Under Secretary in the state Home Department was later reportedly backtracked with a senior official saying the details “are no longer being pursued.”

Vidhan Sabha’s Principal Secretary Pradeep Dubey denied seeking any such information and that no such question was accepted during the session.
