In a major breach in the security of Uttar Pradesh chief minister, a 33-year-old woman abruptly came in front of the pilot car of Yogi Adityanath's convoy in Azamgarh on Thursday to press for her demand of better pay for community health workers.
The woman, named Shubhawati, is a community health worker with Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHA). ASHA workers have for long been protesting for better pay in the state. Shubhawati wanted to hand over a memorandum to the chief minister.
According to an NDTV report, the incident alarmed the security personnel deployed with the CM who tried to stop the woman and her colleagues from reaching his car.
However, the chief minister asked the security staff to let the women meet him. The chief minister had a brief conversation with the health workers at the spot.
Amid the chaos, Shubhawati failed to hand over the memorandum to Yogi as his convoy left the spot in a hurry.
