Abhishek Gupta, a resident of Lucknow, has alleged that Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's Principal Secretary, SP Goyal, demanded a bribe of Rs 25 lakh over setting up of a petrol pump. Gupta reportedly approached the authorities to lodge a complaint.
"First he demanded it indirectly, later asked for Rs 25 lakh," ANI quoted Gupta as saying.
