2. यह उच्च-स्तरीय जाँच इसलिए भी जरूरी है ताकि कानपुर नरसंहार में शहीद हुए 8 पुलिसकर्मियों के परिवार को सही इन्साफ मिल सके। साथ ही, पुलिस व आपराधिक राजनीतिक तत्वों के गठजोड़ की भी सही शिनाख्त करके उन्हें भी सख्त सजा दिलाई जा सके। ऐसे कदमों से ही यूपी अपराध-मुक्त हो सकता है। 2/2— Mayawati (@Mayawati) July 10, 2020
