Aziz Qureshi, former governor of Uttar Pradesh, has been charged with sedition for allegedly making derogatory comments about Yogi Adityanath’s government, police said on Monday. The FIR was filed after BJP leader Akash Kumar Saxena filed a complaint at the Civil Lines Police Station in the Rampur district on Sunday.

According to Saxena’s complaint, Qureshi made derogatory statements against the Yogi Adityanath government and compared it to a “devil blood-sucking monster”, when he went to visit Samajwadi Party leader Azam Khan’s wife Tazeen Fatma and his children at Azam’s house.

Saxena said in his complaint, “The statement can create tension between two communities and create unrest in the society.”
