Lucknow: Blaming Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati for dismal law and order situation, the Samajwadi Party on Wednesday demanded dismissal of the state government, saying it would submit a memorandum to the governor in this regard soon.
"The government has no moral right to continue in office and should be dismissed immediately," Leader of Opposition in the state assembly and senior SP leader, Shivpal Singh Yadav said.
"The legislature party meeting of the Samajwadi Party
has been convened for November 1 to discuss these problems
after which we would meet the governor B L Joshi to present a
memorandum to demand the dismissal of the government," Yadav
told reporters here.
Claiming that his party had thrown out all criminal
elements who have now found refuge in the ruling BSP, Yadav
alleged that these criminals were getting chief minister and
her ministers` patronage which has led to a spurt in crime.
Criminals are having a field day as a result of which
law and order is so bad that government employees and
officials are being killed all over the state and the latest
is the murder of a doctor in Lucknow this morning, Yadav said.
"No one is safe. The chief minister who also
fears for her life has never tried to move out of her bungalow
to get the first hand knowledge of the problems," he said.
Referring to the naming of a BSP MLA from Sultanpur
in a murder case, Yadav said that despite being named in the
FIR he was not being arrested, while, the government is
conspiring to eliminate SP MLA from Bhadohi Vijay Misra by
naming him in the attack on state minister Nand Gopal Nandi
in Allahabad in July.
"Misra has not been present in the state since the
past two years and is abroad along with his son and he is
being unnecessarily framed in the case and a reward of Rs 2.5
lakhs has been announced on him", the SP leader said.
He said a conspiracy has been hatched by the chief
minister and two of her ministers--higher education minister,
Rakesh Dhar Tripathi and secondary education minister,
Rangnath Misra to eliminate him.
