Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Monday night alleged that in several districts of Uttar Pradesh, the district administration along with police are "illegally" confining opposition party workers to their homes, preventing them from participating in the counting of votes.

While sharing CCTV footage of the incident on his official X handle, Akhilesh said that such actions against opposition workers should be stopped, and asked to release the "detained" people immediately.

"Honourable Supreme Court, @ECISVEEP (Election Commission of India), @CEOUP (Chief Electoral Officer, Uttar Pradesh), Police Chief @dgpup @Uppolice should immediately take cognisance of the fact that in many districts of Uttar Pradesh, apart from Mirzapur, Aligarh, Kannauj, the district magistrate and the police administration are illegally putting the political workers of the opposition under house arrest ('nazarbandh'), so that they cannot participate in the counting of votes tomorrow," he said.

"When all political parties are functioning peacefully, governance should refrain from any unethical actions that may provoke public outrage. It is hoped that biased district magistrates and administrative officials will be promptly removed, and the polling process will be conducted in a peaceful environment," he further stated.
