SP slams UP govt over attack on senior scribe Naval Kant Sinha
Lucknow: Targeting the Uttar Pradesh government over deadly attack on senior newstrack.com journalist Naval Kant Sinha, Samajwadi Party on Sunday claimed that Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has failed miserably in maintaining the law and order in the state.
SP spokesperson Rajendra Chaudhary, while talking to the media persons, ridiculed CM Yogi over his claim that the criminals will leave the state.
"CM had boasted that the criminals will have to leave the state if they would wish to continue their business. What happened to this claim? Today the situation is that even the senior scribes are not safe on the roads of the state capital. It clearly shows that the democracy in the state is under threat," he said.
"Yogi ji will be holding an investment meet to attract investors to the state. But in such law and order situation when people are not safe even at their home, how will the investors gather the courage to come here," he added.
"The criminals have understood the main agenda of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in the state. This is why they have no fear of the law. The crimes taken place during the past three days in the state certify the claim of Samajwadi Party," he claimed.
He also targeted the state government as the state has no police chief since former Director General of Police (DGP) Sulkhan Singh retired on December 31.
"The Governor has also raised questions about the poor law and order in the state. The state has no DGP as of now. It is very shameful that 15 days after the appointment, it was ascertained that the new DGP will take charge of the state police," he added.
