Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has the knack of turning adversities to his advantage. Even as the recent hooch tragedy was shocking the CM has ordered a probe into all major hooch tragedies in the last 15 years to cover up the dea­ths of around 50 persons in Aligarh district in the last week.

Instead of ordering the probe into the Aligarh tragedy, he has tried to trap the governments of two previous chief ministers BSP supremo Mayawati (2007-2012) and Samajwadi Party's Ahilesh Yadav (2012-2017) to show that such tragedies have also happened in other party's regimes.

In an order issued to all district magistrates and superintendents of police, he said all big cases of illicit liquor deaths will be reopened to punish the mafia who got away with cop connivance. He also ordered to slap the National Security Act (NSA) on the liquor mafias and that their properties be auctioned to compensate the victims.
