8 UP cops killed in ambush, Chidambaram questions police actions
Kanpur : Eight Uttar Pradesh Police officials have reportedly been killed in an ambush; Congress leader P Chidambaram question police decision of going after the dreaded criminal in his own backyard after sunset.
Criminals roaring on the support of dreaded criminal Vikas Dubey sprayed a volley of bullets on a team of policemen who went to raid their village in Kanpur Dehat district on Thursday night.
"It is difficult to believe that a trained police force will go after sunset to arrest a notorious criminal in his bastion. The tragedy was foretold. I offer my condolences to the families of the unfortunate victims," tweeted Chidambaram.
Speaking about the declination of Uttar Pradesh, P Chidambaram mentioned that Congress last ruled the state 30 years ago and it is the state which gives maximum numbers of MPs in the Parliament but it has become “backward” in every respect.
"UP is so backward in every respect that those who rule UP must hang their heads in shame. Congress was last in the government in UP in 1985-1989, that is 30 years ago. The BJP cannot blame the Congress and is wondering who can be blamed," said Chidamabaram in another tweet.
