Later in the evening, Dhankar summoned Chief Secretary Alapan Bandopadhyay and DG Birendra to Raj Bhavan.
However, the Governor tweeted after the meeting that two top officials of the state administration could not elaborate on the JP Naddar convoy attack or any other information.
Union Home Minister Amit Shah, Union Minister Piyush Goel, Defense Minister Rajnath Singh and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath condemned the incident that night.
Looking at the situation, Amit Shah said, “I strongly condemn the planned attack on BJP President JP Nadda’s convoy.
The attack reflects the reckless attitude of the state government and the law and order situation in the state. If the BJP President is treated like this, then it can be understood how the common men be treated”.
The BJP on Friday staged a state wide protest against the attack on the BJP president.
