The Samajwadi Party workers continuously protesting against the Centre's decision to conduct JEE and NEET exams, were lathi-charged by the UP police on Monday. During the lathi-charge, many activists got severe gashes on their heads, few suffered deep injuries on their arms, legs, and shoulders. After the action, the Lucknow police have detained at least 50 Samajwadi Party workers. Party President Akhilesh Yadav in a tweet called it a 'bloody attack' not a lathi-charge against SP workers who took to the streets in protest against the exams during the Corona period. 'Today every family with children is worried,' Yadav said.
