Lucknow: The statements made by Congress
leaders over the killing of a Chief Medical Officer in Uttar
Pardesh B P Singh are baseless and indicative of the party`s
"cheap thinking and opportunistic politics", the BSP has said.
"The statements given by Congress leaders over the murder
of CMO Singh is indicative of their cheap thinking and
opportunistic politics," BSP state unit president Swami
Prasad Maurya said here yesterday.

"Before levelling allegations against the BSP government
in the state, Congress leaders should remember the criminal
incidents during its regime," Maurya said.

He alleged that during the previous government in the
state, stern action was not taken against criminals and mafias
who were protected by the administration.

He also alleged that the law and order situation in
Congress-ruled states could be gauged from the fact that an
additional district magistrate was burnt alive in Maharashtra
and a police inspector was set ablaze in Rajasthan.
Union Minister of State for Surface Transport Jitin
Prasad had yesterday said in Lakhimpur that Chief Minister
Mayawati should take moral responsibility for Singh`s murder
and resign from her post.

The Congress workers also took out a `nayaya yatra`
across the state demanding a CBI probe into the murder.

B P Singh, the CMO of Uttar Pradesh Family Welfare
department was shot dead by unidentified motorcycle-borne
assailants on April two near his Gomti Nagar residence here.
