Lucknow: Cautioning the opposition parties, including Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, BSP government in Uttar Pradesh said it would strictly deal with those trying to create law and order problem in the state.

"I want to caution SP leader Mulayam Singh Yadav and other political parties that my government will strictly deal with any attempt to vitiate law and order in the state," Chief Minister Mayawati told reporters here.

Alleging that SP tried to create "jungleraj" in the state during its three-day agitation, Mayawati said she wanted to congratulate police and district administration officials for effectively dealing with the situation.

About Jat agitation in west UP where the protesters are demanding reservation for the community in government jobs, Mayawati appealed them not to do anything which could create inconvenience to people of the state.

The Chief Minister also criticised opposition parties for opposing the Bill proposing indirect election of mayors and municipal corporation chairman.

"The opposition parities are only playing politics on the issue and pressurising the Governor for not giving his assent to the Bill," she said.

The UP Urban Local Self Government Bill, proposing indirect elections of mayors and Nagar Palika Parishad chairmen by its members was passed in the state Assembly last month leading to a hue and cry by the entire Opposition, which alleged that it was passed without any debate.
