Lucknow: BJP and Congress on Monday expressed anguish and deep sorrow over spurious liquor tragedy and demanded stern action against the guilty and adequate compensation to the families of the victims.
UPCC President Nirmal Khatri sought to attack the state government saying that it was not concerned about the lives of the people and the incident has exposed its incompetence. He demanded that adequate compensation be given to the family members of the victims.
BJP spokesman Vijay Bahadur Pathak demanded a high level inquiry into the incident and said that guilty should be charged under criminal sections.
"Since SP government has come to power, business of spurious liquor is flourishing in the state. The government failed to get out of its slumber though a similar incident had happened in the Parliamentary constituency of SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav in the past," he alleged.
Pathak said that the government must answer that when this series of deaths due to spurious liquor will end.
