BSP chief Mayawati today attacked the Samajwadi Party government over the murder of her party leader, saying that there is total lawlessness in the state and that the Centre should intervene to improve the
situation.
Condemning the killing of former BSP MLA Sarvesh Kumar Singh Seepu in the Azamgarh district, Miss Mayawati alleged that the manner in which goons, mafia and criminal elements are ruling the roost in the present SP regime, the rule of law has ended in the state and “jungle raj” has been established.
Speaking during a meeting to review party organisation in the districts of western Uttar Pradesh here, she asked the party workers to spread awareness among the people about the wrong policies and the work culture of harassment of the SP government so that they punish the party in the Lok Sabha elections.
The BSP supremo said that every section of the society was feeling harassed and when people come on the streets for their justified demands, the SP government gets them lathicharged.
To distract people’s attention from the problems, the government shuffles civil and police officials and harasses them from time to time, she alleged, adding that this will, however, not benefit the party.
