Lucknow, April 27 - The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) launched a frontal and scathing attack on the Akhilesh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party (SP) government Friday and claimed that every day more than 250 people were being murdered in Uttar Pradesh ever since the new government took over.
Addressing a press conference here, Leader of Opposition and state BSP president Swami Prasad Maurya said that law and order has hit a new low in the state and accused the state government of making officials' transfers a "mini industry in the state".
"Even as crime is spiralling, the government has made transfers an industry," Maurya said. He added that on an average, four murders were taking place in every district every day and by this rate, 250 murders were taking place in the state every day.
Warning that the Samajwadi Party's patronising of criminal elements had begun to tarnish the image of Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, the BSP leader said the people of Uttar Pradesh would soon realise their mistake and would repent voting for the SP.
