Communal amity in UP under threat, says BSP
Lucknow: During the last five months of the Uttar Pradesh government the law and order situation has deteriorated and question marks were also being raised about the communal amity in the state, opposition BSP on Thursday alleged.
Leader of Opposition in the Vidhan Sabha, Swami Prasad Maurya said, "there is no law and order worth its name in the state besides there was also a question mark on the communal amity of the state because of some recent incidents."
He demanded "concrete measures" by the Samajwadi Party government to immediately check the prevailing "goonda" and "mafiaraj".
Incidents in Kosi Kalan (Mathura), Pratapgarh, Saharanpur and now Bareilly have harmed the communal amity in the state, he said.
The BSP leader alleged that it is not just the criminals, but also the police as well as those belonging to the ruling party who are also responsible for the present scenario.
Under the present conditions, the chief minister and his ministers are busy issuing mere statements, Maurya said adding that government should immediately formulate a concrete strategy to check the situation so that the people of the state could get respite from it.
