President's rule can be imposed in UP if situation demands
Kanpur: Expressing serious concern over the law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh, Governor Ram Naik, said, in reply to a question, regarding imposition of President's rule that such decisions are taken at an appropriate time.
Sounding unhappy over day-light crimes, especially in the state capital, and land-grabbing cases in different parts of the state, the governor said he had sought report on all these issues from the government. “This issue (president rule) will be considered after I receive the report of the government in reply to my letter sent on Wednesday. The report will be then sent to the President and a decision will be only taken at an appropriate time,” he told media-persons on the sidelines of the function at the conclusion of one-month summer training programme at Bal Bhawan.
He said that he had already sent a letter to the UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, asking him to furnish details regarding Mathura, Kairana, Dadri and Lucknow incidents. The reply is still awaited.
- The report received from the UP government will be sent to the Presidents with his comments.

- Action was taken in Mathura only after the High Court’s order.
- Land grabbing is another serious issue .
