AAP leader,Loya’s death,Aam Aadmi Party

Sanjay Singh, national general secretary of the Aam Aadmi Party, demanded probe into the death of Judge BH Loya on Tuesday.

  • Anuj Loya, son of special CBI judge BH Loya, on January 14, had told media in Mumbai that there was “nothing suspicious” about his father’s death and asked the media, politicians, lawyers and NGOs “not to harass” the family.
  • The 21-year-old Anuj Loya told reporters that judge Loya’s death in December 2014 was “natural” and described it as a “sad and private matter”.

Singh, who is Uttar Pradesh incharge of the party, was in the state capital on Tuesday which is his first visit to Lucknow after getting elected to the Rajya Sabha.

“Judge BM Loya died under mysterious circumstances. A high level probe into his death will only unravel the truth,” Singh told the media. Loya was a special CBI judge hearing the Sohrabuddin encounter case in Mumbai. He died on December 1, 2014, in Nagpur where he had gone to attend a wedding.

Singh also took potshots at the Yogi government.

Booth Management
  • The AAP has planned a two-day statewide workshop on February 17 and 18 in which 200 party workers in each district would be imparted training related with booth management.

“Chief minister Yogi Adityanath has failed on all fronts, especially on the law and order. Rampant increase in the incidents of crime in the state indicates that criminals are having field day under the BJP government,” said Singh.

On the occasion, the AAP leader also criticised the state government for not being able to provide sweaters to students of primary schools this winter.

“Despite promising to provide sweaters in this winter season to students of primary schools, the state government has not been able to do so,” said Singh.

The national general secretary of AAP also attacked the Centre for allowing 100% FDI in some sectors.
