Lucknow: The Akhilesh government, late on Wednesday night, dismissed Kuldeep Ujjwal, the chairman of Uttar Pradesh Liquor Prohibition Board after an audio clip of him threatening and abusing senior officials in Baghpat district went viral on social media.

Kuldeep Ujjwal, who is also the Samajwadi Party’s Baghpat candidate for the assembly polls next year, however, alleged that this was a conspiracy by his rivals and said that the audio clip was ‘doctored’.

 

Principal Secretary (Information) Navneet Sehgal confirmed that  Kuldeep Ujjwal had been dismissed on the orders of the chief minister, he did not elaborate on the reasons behind the move.
