After Mulayam rap, Akhilesh talks tough on law and order

After Mulayam rap, Akhilesh talks tough on law and order
Facing Opposition attack over the alleged failure to control crime graph in Uttar Pradesh, chief minister Akhilesh Yadav on Sunday said in case of any complaint of law and order problem action will now be taken against officers of DIG rank instead of lower staff.

‘Constables and sub-inspectors will not be held guilty for law and order problems. Officers of DIG rank will be punished in such cases’, Yadav said while launching Dr Ram Manohar Lohia village housing scheme here.

Taking potshots at the previous BSP government, Yadav said that unlike previous regime the budget and sacks have been arranged for wheat purchase and arrangements made to directly make payment to farmers through RTGS in their accounts.

Yadav claimed that his government has made a record of running Vidhan Sabha sessions and said that in previous BSP regime short sessions were held so that legislators could not air their grievances.


BJP ASKS SR YADAV TO CLARIFY MOTIVE

With Samajwadi Party national president Mulayam Singh Yadav criticising his son’s government in Uttar Pradesh over corruption and law and order, BJP on Sunday asked him clarify his stand and ‘motive’ behind raising this issue from a public platform.

‘Mulayam Singh Yadav’s statement against his own government certainly raises questions on the motive of the senior Yadav. The question being asked is why Sr Yadav raised these issues from open platform. He could have done the same in closed door meeting,’  BJP spokesperson Vijay Bahadur Pathak said.

While addressing a function organised on occasion of Ram Manohar Lohia, Mulayam Singh Yadav had asked his son to be tough. He said that ministers were not working upto the expecttaions of the masses. The workers have made this government but ministers are enjoying life to the hilt. He even said that  BJP leader LK Advani, who never tells lie, had informed him about the rampant corruption in the state.

Using Mulayam’s speech as a hammer to beat Akhilesh Yadav government, the BJP said that the statement shows that the SP leadership has started accepting the failure of the Akhilesh Yadav government vindicating the charges of the BJP, Pathak said.
