Lucknow, Feb 12 (IBNS): Hitting out at the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Samajwadi Party (SP) president, Akhilesh Yadav, has alleged that he was prevented from boarding plane at Lucknow airport.

Akhilesh was about to attend a programme of the Allahabad University Students' Union on Tuesday afternoon.

He took to Twitter to say, "I was prevented from boarding the airplane without any written orders. Currently detained at Lucknow airport. It is clear how frightened the govt is by the oath ceremony of a student leader. The BJP knows that youth of our great country will not tolerate this injustice anymore!"

The SP leader was about to be present at the oath-taking ceremony of the students' union in the Allahabad University. The student wing of Akhilesh's party is presently holding the president's post of Allahabad University Students' Union.

However, the Allahabad University had reportedly told Akhilesh's personal secretary that politicians are not allowed for any event in the university.

Mayawati slams BJP:

Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo, Mayawati, who will fight the 2019 General Elections in an alliance with the SP, called the incident "undemocratic" while attacking the BJP government.

"The incident of stopping Akhilesh Yadav from going to Allahabad by preventing him to board plane at the Lucknow airport is condemnable and symbolises that the BJP government is anti-democratic," former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati tweeted.

Fear of law and order problems:

The Allahabad police reportedly said the SP leader has been denied to enter the university fearing problems of law and order.
