Explosive recovered from UP Assembly, Yogi Adityanath claims 'terror conspiracy'

In his address in the state Assembly, the UP chief minister said that the "white powder" was recovered on July 12 and after receiving the forensic science lab test report, it was confirmed that it was a highly explosive substance PETN.

Security officials were seen reviewing the Assembly complex after Wednesday's incident. "If explosives can be found under seat of Leader of Opposition, you can imagine condition of law and order in UP", senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad told media persons. Adityanath also advised the MLAs to not carry their mobile phones in the assembly.

The PETN (Pentaerythritol Tetranitrate) explosive found lying under the seat of a Samajwadi Party legislator inside the UP Assembly is one of the most unsafe plastic explosives available in the black market and preferred by terrorists as the colourless crystals easily surpass security checks.

Adityanath noted that it was not just a matter to be condemned by the House, but the need was to give a befitting reply. He said farmers who had got their Aadhaar cards linked to their bank accounts would benefit in the first two phases.
