Samajwadi Party leader and MLC Sunil Singh Sajan while attacking the government over the issue, said Deoria is the adjoining district of Gorakhpur, from where the CM belong and unearth of such an incident was unforunate.
"The BJP government claims that they are the protector of girls, but the incident showed how they protected illegal running of the shelter homes," he said.
