Etah: Former Chief Minister Kalyan Singh has alleged the law and order had deteriorated in Uttar Pradesh and nobody was safe in the state.
"Lawlessness has crossed all limits in UP. The (SP) government has failed to control the law and order. Women and girls, in particular, are no longer safe," he told reporters after visiting Awagarh town here yesterday.
Two traders were shot dead by some unidentified persons in the town on Sunday.
Shops and markets in Awagarh remained shut for three days in protest against the double murder.
Kalyan, whose Jan Kranti Party recently merged with the BJP, said a Special Task Force team should be constituted to probe the double murder.
