SP slams Maya as BSP completes 3 yrs in power

The SP on Thursday attacked rival BSP on its completion of three years in power in Uttar Pradesh charging that its rule has been beset with law and order problems.

New Delhi: The SP on Thursday attacked rival BSP
on its completion of three years in power in Uttar Pradesh
charging that its rule has been beset with law and order
problems.

"(BSP Chief) Mayawati had promised during the UP assembly
elections in 2007 that she would improve the law and order
situation in UP. However her regime has only led to chaos and
with so many unscrupulous elements in her party, the state has
become an example of organised crime rule. Law and order
situation has worsened in the state in the last three years,"
SP spokesperson Mohan Singh told reporters here.

He alleged that Mayawati wasted precious public money by
installing memorials and put extra burden on the state
exchequer.

"When (SP chief) Mulayam Singh Yadav`s tenure as UP chief
minister ended, the state had a surplus of Rs 18,000 crore.
However now the state faces a deficit of Rs 55,000 crore. No
leader in the country`s political history would have worn a
garland made with currency notes worth lakhs. Mayawati will
have to come clean on all the allegations levelled against
her," Singh said.
