Replying to the media queries at party’s state headquarters, Rajnath said that he will not comment on the situation of any state.

At party state headquarters, when asked about the his (as Home Minister) view about the UP’s law and order situation and the steps Centre was taking, Rajnath said, “I will not comment on any state. Home Ministry has report about the situation of every state.”
Rajnath said that Home Ministry was preparing a comprehensive and integrated action plan to tackle the problem of terrorism, Naxalism and separatism. He said that the Centre will take a balanced action on these issues.
Rajnath himself had been targeting the UP government on law and order issue for the past two years. He had also led a delegation of BJP leaders and met President Pranab Mukherjee on September 22 last year demanding President’s rule in UP, soon after communal clashes broke oit in Muzaffarnagar. BJP state unit had recently staged a protest at Chief Minister’s Secretariat on the issue of crime against women after the alleged twin gangrape-murder of two girls in Badaun. BJP state president Laxmikant Bajpai had also sought intervention of the Union Home Minister on the law and order situation of UP and the party’s state unit had also appealed the Union Home Minister to force UP government to take appropriate action in Badaun case.
