Bulandshahr violence due to irresponsible Govt: Mayawati


Former Chief Minister and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) Chief Mayawati on Tuesday blamed Yogi Government’s “irresponsible and wrong” policies in Uttar Pradesh for the mob violence in Bulandshahr in which a police officer was among the two persons killed.

“Killing of a police inspector in Bulandshahr violence is due to irresponsible and wrong policies of the state government. Strict action should be taken against those involved in the act so that people can feel that there is a government in UP”, she said.

“Due to patronising of unscrupulous elements by the BJP, there is ‘jungle raj’ in the state,” Ms. Mayawati said.

Expressing deep condolence to the families of the deceased in the violence, the socialist leader said there was a need to establish a rule of law to prevent mob attacks.

Inspector Subodh Kumar Singh, who had probed the Akhlaq lynching case initially, died of gunshot injuries on Monday as a rampaging mob belonging to Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) was protesting against alleged cow slaughter. The rampaging mob also torched a police post and clashed with the cops leaving many injured, the police said.

It seems that the BJP government in the state has failed to discharge its duties, the BSP supremo added.
