Implementation of Ayodhya verdict state`s responsibility: Cong
Lucknow: Hitting back at Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati for her stand that it was the Union government`s responsibility to implement the Ayodhya verdict, Congress on Friday said it was a "state subject".
"It is the state government`s responsibility to implement the court verdict and the Centre can interfere only when either the state says it is incapable of doing so and the chief minister resigns or in case the Centre feels that the state was not capable of doing it.
"If the state government says it is not capable of implementing the order to maintain status quo as well as to control the law and order situation we will take care of it," AICC secretary Pervez Hashmi told reporters here.
Taking exception to the timing of her statement, Hashmi said, "instead of appealing to the people to maintain calm", she accused the Centre of not providing adequate paramilitary force personnel. "It is wrong to state that the Centre has no concern for law and order."
Echoing similar sentiments, state Congress chief Rita Bahuguna Joshi said the Centre has limited resources and has to take care of the entire nation. She said Uttar Pradesh was provided with adequate forces.
