He also said, “If any of the MP found guilty of lobbying for government officer, then strict action will be taken against them.” PM Modi also advised MPs of Uttar Pradesh not to put unnecessary pressure on the police department of the state and also to not interfere in the work of bureaucrats. They should be given free hand should be no discriminate among the officers on basis of their caste and religion. As per our sources, there was no particular meeting held for this discussion.
