Raja Bhaiya's actions in the Akhilesh Yadav-led govt exemplifies 'goonda raj' in Uttar Pradesh and there is free run being given by the administration to Samajwadi Party (SP) goons in the state, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati said on Tuesday.
"The Samajwadi Party Government in Uttar Pradesh will complete an year on 15th of March. But in the one-year of rule so far, the government has failed in every aspect. There is no development and the law and order situation has deteriorated. In true sense, it is the rule of Samajwadi Party goons in Uttar Pradesh now," she told media outside the Parliament here.
Mayawati said no arrests have been made so far despite the FIR being lodged in connection with the cop''s killing.
"What action has been taken against Raja Bhaiya, just a resignation?" she asked.
Asserting that there is no law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh, Mayawati said there should be a President''s rule in the state now.
Meanwhile, Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee President Rita Bahugana Joshi also took on the Akhilesh Yadav Government over the deteriorating law and order situation in the state, and announced that her party will take out a justice march from Kunda to Lucknow if all those accused of murdering Deputy Superintendent of Police Zia ul Haque are not arrested within 15 days.
Joshi said the murdered cop''s wife has demanded a CBI inquiry for she has faith in the investigating agency.
"The Chief Minister has assured to refer this case to the CBI. I don''t know whether it actually has been referred or not, but I want the CBI to investigate this case within a time frame and bring forward the truth," Joshi told media in Lucknow.
"But it doesn''t mean that the government cannot work. An FIR has been lodged following which our Pradesh Congress Committee has decided that if all the accused are not arrested within 15 days then the Congress Party will take out a justice march from Kunda to Lucknow," she added.
