BSP uproar in UP Council on law and order issue

BSP created uproar in the UP Legislative Council on the issue of law and order situation in the state.

Lucknow: BSP on Wednesday created uproar in the Uttar Pradesh Legislative Council on the issue of law and order situation in the state and staged a walkout when its adjournment notice was rejected.

The determined BSP members rushed into the Well raising anti-government slogans minutes after the House met for the day and forced its brief adjournment.

When the House reassembled, they raised the matter again and staged walkout alleging poor law and order situation in the state.

The BSP members demanded an immediate debate on the recent killing of six members of a family in Etawah district.

Leader of the Opposition Naseemuddin Siddiqui alleged that there had been a spurt in crime in Etawah - the home district of Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.

He alleged that while in Etawah six members of a family were killed by SP workers, a minor girl was raped inside a police station in Badaun district.

Siddiqui said the situation had gone worse within two months of SP coming to power and people were agitated.

Responding to his concerns, Panchayati Raj Minister Balram Yadav said the incident was outcome of dispute between two brothers.

He said the matter was being investigated and all efforts were being made to check crime effectively.

"To control law and order is the priority of the government," he said adding that the CM held a meeting and fixed responsibility of the officers.

However, dissatisfied with the reply, BSP members staged walkout raising slogans.
