We have requested him (Governor) to wake up the government and give direction to control the prevailing ‘jungle-raj’,” the SP chief told reporters after meeting the Governor
“Bar council chairperson is being murdered in her chamber. There is murder in jail…How these are happening? The state government is responsible,” he said.
