The Uttar Pradesh government is a run not by politicians, but the very worst in Indian politics. What else would explain first the behavior of the Samajwadi Party MLA Irfan Solanki and his supporters and the police who beat up doctors in Kanpur?
On Friday night, a clash broke out between the SP MLA and his supporters and the doctors, in which the police were called in, and not surprisingly started caning the doctors and the miscreants from the Samajwadi Party.

Following this, the police took no action against the MLA or his goons, and refused to file a case against him either. Later the doctors across the state of Uttar Pradesh (UP) to protest this behavior of the UP government, went on an indefinite strike leading to major chaos across the state of UP.
The Samajwadi Party, however refused to budge, and instead of bringing the guilty MLA to book and the SP of Police, Yashashwi Yadav even defended beating up the doctors.
Mulayam Singh Yadav – Unrepenent
Not surprisingly today, Mulayam Singh Yadav, today when question about deaths of patients due to the strike, rather than showing the least amount of concern, retorted saying, “Who died? Did anyone in your family die? Did anyone from your village die?”
Is that what a politician should say when Doctors are beaten up? Hospitals don’t have doctors? Children, women and the elderly aren’t receiving medical treatment? Does he have no shame? Is he even living in Uttar Pradesh or an alternate universe?
Mulayam recently has started campaigning himself as a possible Prime Ministerial candidate, but with statements like this, does he deserve to even be in politics, much less be the Prime Ministerial candidate? The Samajwadi Party has presided over a terrible reign in Uttar Pradesh. From riots, to children starving and dying, to their MLA’s frolicking in Europe. There is nothing this government has done right.
Akhilesh Yadav has been so bad at governance, his own father at a public event stated that, “Your government is being run by sycophants”
Hopefully the next elections will lead to the booting out of the Samajwadi Party from Indian politics forever.
