Lucknow: Former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Akhilesh Yadav today took on the Yogi Adityanath led state government and said the law and order situation in the state is not in good situation.
Akhilesh Yadav alleged that under the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) regime, crime had soared and law and order was in bad shape.
Referring to the attack on the Saharanpur SSP’s house some time back by a mob led by a BJP MP, the Samajwadi Party (SP) national President also said that it was a litmus test for the ruling party and every person was waiting to see whether the Chief Minster would crack the whip on such lumpen elements in the ruling dispensation.
“We have also been in power…my photograph would be posted on TV channels with any and every news on crimes in the state. Now let me see how many journalists would now dare to show the present Chief Minister’s picture while showing such news,” he said in an apparent reference to the media.
“We were called names, referred to as a party of goons who ran police stations… What will the BJP leaders call the present situation when officials are being terrorised by its cadres?” he said.
