'What do you expect from them?'

Targeting the Opposition parties that raised questions over Ansari's death, Adityanath elaborated, "Congress people tried their best to save him. The people of the Samajwadi Party are his protectors. What do you expect from them (the Opposition)?"

The Uttar Pradesh chief minister further attacked the Congress and Samajwadi Party drawing parallels between the two parties' reactions during the deaths of former sate chief minister Kalyan Singh and Ansari.

"This is the difference (between the Opposition and the BJP) that when Lord Ram's devotee and former chief minister of Uttar Pradesh Kalyan Singh passed away, neither the Samajwadi Party nor the Congress leaders expressed condolences. But, they shed crocodile tears on a mafia's death," Adityanath said.

Ansari, who served as an MLA in Uttar Pradesh five times, died on March 28 from a heart attack while he was in Banda jail.
