Fatehpur (UP): BSP on Saturday lashed out at delay in the arrest of self-styled godman Asaram Bapu saying that he should have been in jail by now as his act has also "degraded the Sadhus".
"Asaram has also degraded the Sant Samaj ... The delay in his arrest by the Rajasthan police proved that instead of following the law it (police) is out to give shelter to him", leader of opposition in the UP assembly, Swami Prasad Maurya told reporters here.
"The law of the land is supreme... Everyone however big he might be has to abide by it... And Asaram is no exception," he said.
On Uttar Pradesh, the BSP leader said that the state government has failed on all fronts and Akhilesh Yadav has proved to be the most "unsuccessful" Chief Minister so far.
