BJP president Amit Shah has lashed out at Akhilesh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party government in Uttar Pradesh over Kairana exodus and the Mathura cult violence.
He used these two incidents to highlight the poor law and order situation in the state.
Trying to connect the chord with the electorate, the BJP president said, “If you want UP to be developed then vote for the BJP.”
Taking on Akhilesh over Kairana exodus, Shah said, “This (alleged exodus) is not taking place only in Kairana but in the entire state. The CM says it is a law and order problem, so I would like to ask him, who is entrusted with the power to maintain law and order situation in the state.” Will US President Barack Obama take care of this? Shah roared.
“Lack of governance and lack of development in UP is a matter of serious concern,” he said.
The state BJP has already formed a nine-member committee under MP Hukum Singh to assess the situation at the spot.
While the BJP has accused the SP government of patronising those behind the “mass exodus”, opposition Congress and incumbent SP claims that the saffron party is trying to give a “non-issue” a communal colour with an eye on 2017.
“Every state has one chief minister, but in UP there are three-and-a-half Chief Ministers if you take into account his father and uncles besides Mohd Azam Khan,” he said.
“The UP government has redefined law and order as ‘lo and order karo’ (take bribe and issue order),” he said.
Trying to connect the chord with the electorate, the BJP president said, “If you want UP to be develop then vote for the BJP.”
He accused the Akhilesh Yadav government of favouring people from a particular caste and religion and giving them job opportunities.
