The Hindu Yuva Vahini, a religious youth outfit founded by UP chief minister Yogi Adityanath in 2002, called for an emergency meeting in Greater Noida’s Swarn Nagri on Sunday, after a few posters put up by it were found torn.

Chainpal Bhati, president of the outfit’s Gautam Budh Nagar unit, said he suspected that the act was part of a larger conspiracy. Bhati’s face was found torn off from more than a dozen posters. “I had invested a huge sum of money to put up the posters across the district. But they were found torn in Swarn Nagari, Dadri roundabout and Eicher roundabout. Hoardings that were atop electricity poles were left untouched, but others were tarnished. This is a deliberate attack,” Bhati said.

“It seems that the increasing influence of our outfit in GB Nagar has troubled a few people to the extent that they are engaging in such acts,” he claimed.

The organisation called for an emergency meeting of its members on Sunday. “After the posters were found torn, our president called for a meeting immediately to tackle this issue,” said Navin Sharma, a volunteer.

“We have raised the issue with the party seniors. From now on, we will identify people involving in the act and file police complaints against them,” Bhati said.
