The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister faced severe backlash from activists and political leaders, with several of them saying that he must respect the law, while some called him ignorant.

Lucknow. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath asserted on Wednesday that his governmnet will not spare those men who are indulged in extra marital relations. His statement has sparked a massive debate with the CM receiving backlash from political leaders and activists. 
Reportedly, Yogi while addressing an event to reach out to triple talaq victims, asserted that UP government will bring in a law to punish men, including Hindus, who are involved in illicit affairs. 


Subramanian Swamy, Bharatiya Janata Party MP from Rajya Sabha, told the sources, “If a Hindu man has an extra-marital affair without the permission of his wife, or he is now separated from his wife, then it will be very difficult for any law to sustain that. I don't think whether the law will permit prosecution for unless the wife complains. A state government cannot bring a legislation on this, only the Centre can do it.”  



Meanwhile, AIMIM chief and Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi called Yogi “ignorant”, NCP leader Majeed Memon said Adityanath “must respect the law” that he is the constitutional head of a state. 
Yogi Adityanath also announced a new scheme for triple talaq victims wherein they will be given an yearly sum of Rs 6,000. “A new scheme should be introduced under which victims of triple talaq as well as women who have been left by their husbands should be identified and given Rs 6,000 per annum. They will be given this money till they get justice.”
