Share This

priyankagandhiNEW DELHI : Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Saturday lashed out at the Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government in Uttar Pradesh over a spurt in the rate of crimes.
“In Uttar Pradesh criminals are roaming freely and doing whatever they want. Criminal incidents are taking place one after the other. However, its BJP government has turned deaf. Has the Uttar Pradesh government surrendered before criminals?” she said.

The UP police was quick to respond back to the state’s Congress general secretary and claimed that strict action has been taken against culprits in serious crime. They also said there has been an “unprecedented decline in dacoity, murder, robbery and kidnapping cases.”
In a tweet in Hindi, they also claimed there has been a reduction in crimes by 20-35% and all “sensational crimes have been solved in 48 hours.” The UP police also claimed that in two years, 9225 criminals have been arrested and 81 have been killed.
She also questioned if the state government has “surrendered before criminals” and alleged the BJP government in the state has turned a deaf year to crimes. Yogi Adityanath is the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh.
The Samajwadi Party too had attacked the BJP government for “spurt in crime” in the state. After a video of two inmates flashing a country-made pistol at the Uttar Pradesh’s Unnao jail was widely shared on social media, the Samajwadi Party termed the incident an “open challenge” to Yogi Adityanath.(With Inputs from UP).
