There was a petrol station on the Delhi-Rampur highway, ANI reported.

The controversy erupted on Monday when a video clip showing MLA Adityanath threatening and making provocative statements surfaced online.

Addressing party supporters in Bareilly, Shazil Islam Ansari said: “If a sound comes out of his (Adityanath’s) mouth, the smoke will come out of our (Samajwadi Party’s) guns, not bullets.”

An FIR or first information report was lodged against Ansari and some others for making “provocative statements” against the chief minister. He was charged with disturbing the peace, making threatening and provocative statements with the intention of inciting riots.

The MLA, however, questioned the authenticity of the video clip and claimed that his statement was incorrect. “A news channel edited my video and then it went viral. At the event, I said that as a strong opponent, we would respond strongly to all things like guns that release bullets and not smoke, “he was quoted as saying by PTI.
