UP: Adityanath should assume CM’s post when he is ‘ready’, says Raj Babbar

Mathura: The Congress on May 18 asked Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to step down and not assume the top post till he is ready to control the ‘deteriorating’ law and order situation in the state.
“The state government wants to shirk responsibility by taking action against a few policemen. 103 incidents of loot and 76 killing have taken place ever since the Adityanath government took over the reins of the state,” Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee chief Raj Babbar claimed.
He also questioned why the state government has not announced a financial assistance for the families of two jewelers, Megh and Vikas, killed in Mathura on May 15.
Babbar said UP minister Shrikant Sharma and DGP Sulkhan Singh neither visited the place where the killing took place nor did they meet the protesting traders. Four killings took place the day they arrived in Mathura, he claimed.
“If Yogi Aditynath wants to take time to bring the situation under control he should assume the post of chief minister when he is ready,” he said.
The trader community has been protesting against the killing of the two jewelers in Koyalawali Gali in Mathura for the last three days.
The issue had on May 16 resonated in the state assembly, with the opposition parties claiming that the law and order situation was deteriorating in the state.
Three police officials were on May 17 suspended in the wake of the killing and the police were given three days to nab the culprits.
