The former Chief Minister was visiting the patients and families who suffered in the recent bus accident that killed around 20 passengers.

“You are a very junior officer… a very small worker. You could be from the RSS… you could be from the BJP. You can’t tell me what they are saying… you don’t have to speak on behalf of the government. Step back… step further back. Go away from here…” Akhilesh further added.
The concerned doctor later said that he was trying to correct the family member’s claim of not receiving compensation
