Prayagraj : Uttar Pradesh government spokesperson and state cabinet minister Siddharth Nath Singh has asked the Opposition leaders of not doing politics on the death of Mahant Narendra Giri who was found
” Instead of condoling the death of Mahant Narendra Giri peacefully, SP chief Akhilesh Yadav is doing politics in such a sad time,” he alleged.
The cabinet minister, who went to Prayagraj to pay tributes to Mahant, said that it is a very difficult time for them.
He said:” I agree that politics is his(Akhilesh) profession, but at least do not do politics today. It doesn’t suit. It is very unfortunate and inhuman. Instead of politics, he should offer his respects to the departed soul, ” Mr Singh said.
He said that the entire matter is being investigated fairly and the Chief Minister has ordered a high level investigation into the matter.
Akhil Bharatiya Akhara Parishad president Mahant Narendra Giri was found dead at Baghambari Mutt here on Monday.
