Uttar Pradesh is one of the worst affected states in India. There are various allegations against Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for ignoring the horrors of the Corona crisis.

The leader, who is very close to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, recently demanded that their property be confiscated if anyone spreads rumors or propaganda.

Yogi Adityanath has claimed that there is no shortage of oxygen in hospitals in his state. However, different news shows a different picture.

Officials in the Uttar Pradesh city of Amethi say Shashank’s “fake tweets” have tempted others to make anti-government allegations. For this reason, a case was filed against him last Tuesday night.

In this context, a senior police official said that Shashank Yadav has been accused of spreading false information.

Last Monday, 26-year-old Shashank Yadav tweeted for oxygen for his dying grandfather. In it, he tagged Bollywood actor Sonu Sood. However, Shashank did not mention the coronavirus anywhere in the tweet.
