Lucknow: Demanding resignation of Chief
Minister Mayawati over law and order situation in UP, Samajwadi
Party on Monday said she should take moral responsibility for the
current situation in the state which was being called
"balatkari pradesh" following a spate of rape incidents.

"Mayawati should take moral responsibility of pitiable
condition of law and order in the state and resign. It`s
unfortunate that UP is known as `balatkari (rapist) pradesh`
in her regime," opposition SP leader Shivpal Singh Yadav told
reporters here.

"Mayawati should take moral responsibility of pitiable
condition of law and order in the state and resign. It`s
unfortunate that UP is known as `balatkari (rapist) pradesh`
in her regime," opposition SP leader Shivpal Singh Yadav told
reporters here.

Citing incidents of rapes in Etah, Kanpur, Gonda,
Basti, Kannauj, Saharanpur and others districts, Yadav alleged
that the Chief Minister was in "deep slumber" while the
administration was not paying any heed to the common man`s
woes.

"The CM doesn`t meet anyone except two-three ministers
and officers. It`s unfortunate that a chief minister is not
available for common man. She never met her own MPs and MLAs",
he claimed.

"While corruption has reached its peak, there is no
law and order with criminals ruling the roost in the state,"
Yadav alleged.
