UP CM should apologise for arresting VHP leaders: Swamy
New Delhi: Describing the detention of VHP leader Ashok Singhal as "brazenly illegal and unlawful", BJP leader Subramanian Swamy demanded that he be released immediately and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav tender an apology for this act.
"The detention of Ashok Singhal, one of the most renowned VHP leaders, by the UP government is brazenly illegal and unlawful step and a gross violation of Article 19 of the Constitution," Swamy said in a statement.

Swamy, who had merged his Janata Party into the BJP on August 11, said for this purpose SP Chief Mulayam Singh Yadav was asked to mediate on this issue.
"So under what law can the Chief Minister order this illegal detention? I demand the immediate release of Singhal and an apology from Akhilesh Yadav," he said.
