BJP compares SP govt in UP to Mughal sultanate

New Delhi: Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) compared Samajwadi Party (SP) government in Uttar Pradesh to “Mughal Sultanate” on Tuesday.

The party’s national secretary Shrikant Sharma addressed the media persons here in the context of a 10-year-old boy’s killing on Sunday by a stray bullet from a gun fired allegedly by Samajwadi Party supporters in Shamli district to celebrate the party’s win in zila panchayat elections.

A television crew which had gone to cover the incident was also attacked, beaten up and held hostage for hours.

“There is complete lawlessness in Uttar Pradesh. It is Mughal sultanate where goons celebrate openly with arms on the streets, and no action is taken against them even if they kill a person,” Sharma said.

Adding that there were on an average 17 communal riots in Uttar Pradesh in a day, and that the rioters were not being brought to the book, Sharma said that the state government has no moral right to stay in power.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Monday ordered action against the Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM) and the Deputy Superintendent of Police of Shamli.

With elections scheduled in 2017, the politics in UP is speeding. The opposition is trying to leave no opportunity to target the government.(IANS)
