Luckow : UP’s tainted minister Gayatri Prajapati has been a head ache to the Akhilseh Yadav-led government. The minister is charged under various cases including disproportionate assets, illegal mining, rape, murder and many more.

The minister is on a run after red notice has been issued against him. The Governor of UP Ram Naik pulled up Akhilesh Yadav for allowing Prajapati, to continue as minister. The governor asked why the gang raped accused was given a spot in his cabinet.

In a letter, the governor said "His remaining a minister in the cabinet and no action being taken against him raises serious questions on democratic sanctity, constitutional integrity and morality,".

The controversial minister is also Samajwadi party's candidate from Amethi in the ongoing assembly polls. Gayatri Prajapati has been on the run ever since the Supreme Court asked the Uttar Pradesh police to take action against him. While the BJP and the BSP have been taking digs at the SP for allowing a gang rape accused minister to contest in the elections and accused the party of shielding him.
