In a response regarding the dismal law and order situation in the state, UP minister Suresh Kumar Khanna said that the government did not promise a ‘crime-free UP’.
BJP government was formed to power with a major poll promise to crack down on crime as one of the main poll promise. They accused previous governments of being sided with criminals but current trends seem like that law & order situation has been increased since BJP came into power.
“Itna bada pradesh hai, humne zero crime ki baat kabhi nahi ki (It is such a big state, we never promised zero crime),” said Khanna.
He further clarified his stance with the reporter and went on to say that the outgoing government run by Samajwadi Party, supported criminals
“The last government supported criminals. When I said we can’t make UP crime free, I did not mean incidents such as rape.” He said
After the hue and cry over anti-Romeo squads and crackdown on illegal slaughter houses in Uttar Pradesh. There is no doubt that the new BJP government is struggling to bring the deteriorating law and order in control.
