Lucknow:  SP leader and former chief minister Akhilesh Yadav on Monday took a swipe at Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for not visiting the eidgah here on the occasion of Eid.

It has been a regular feature of chief ministers in Uttar Pradesh to visit an eidgah on the occasion of Eid. "I am an ousted chief minister and I am here. Whey he has not come, he should tell," Akhilesh told reporters in Lucknow.

To a question, Akhilesh advised the Centre to "control the situation in Kashmir".
