The chopper carrying Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was on Tuesday forced to land on a field instead of the makeshift helipad at a school in Kasganj, Uttar Pradesh.
Adityanath, however, landed safe and attended the scheduled programmes, Principal Secretary (Home) Arvind Kumar said in Lucknow.
”Yes, the chief minister is safe,” Kumar told PTI.
It was a case of major security lapse as the chopper carrying the CM was scheduled to land on the grounds of the Kasturba Gandhi Vidyalaya, but it was forced to land on a field a kilometer away from the school.
Adityanath is on a day’s visit to the place to meet the members of a family whose three members were recently murdered at Pharauli village under Sahawar tehsil of the district. After visiting the family, he reviewed the developmental works and law and order situation in the district.
”The chief minister distributed the cheques and all the programmes were held successfully,” SP Kasganj Piyush Srivastava told PTI.
