Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati on Saturday reviewed the law and order situation in the state and directed police officials to take stringent action against criminals and anti-socials.

"During a high-level meeting to review law and order, Mayawati took a serious view of recent incidents of crime and directed police to work them out at the earliest," an official spokesman said.

On Wednesday, a senior health official was shot dead by some unidentified persons near his house in Vikas Nagar in the city.

The Chief Minister asked the officials to launch a crackdown against those vitiating the atmosphere in the state and sternly told them that laxity at any level would not be tolerated.

Lauding the administration and police for successful conduct of the Panchayat polls in the state recently, she said the elections were better than 2005 from law and order point of view.

"Only 59 people were injured in poll-related violence this time against 171 in 2005," Mayawati said.

She said the state had demanded 50 companies of CMPF for Panchayat elections but not a single one was allotted to it.

Terming recent incidents of crime in the state as unfortunate, Mayawati said the criminals took advantage of police's engagement in Ayodhya issue, floods and Panchayat polls.

She directed the Principal Secretary (Home), the DGP and the additional DGP to review the law and order situation in every division and district through video conferencing on November one, the spokesman said.
