Samajwadi Party (SP) president Akhilesh Yadav was allegedly prevented from boarding an airplane without any written orders on Tuesday.

The former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh was on his way to attend the swearing-in ceremony of a student leader in Allahabad.

Taking to Twitter, Akhilesh said the incident clearly shows how "frightened" the government is by his presence at the oath-taking ceremony of a student leader.

"I was prevented from boarding the airplane without any written orders. Currently detained at Lucknow airport. It is clear how frightened the government is by the oath ceremony of a student leader. The BJP knows that youth of our great country will not tolerate this injustice anymore!" Yadav tweeted.

The SP leader also said authorities failed to cite reasons for stopping him from boarding the flight.

"The sole purpose of preventing me from attending the student union's program is to suppress socialist ideas and voices among the youth," Yadav added. (ANI)
