Union Minister Uma Bharti slammed the SP government on Sunday over the deteriorating law and order situation in UP and accused it of “shielding” criminals and rapists.

“There is no law and order in UP. The state government is shielding criminals and rapists,” Bharti said during a press conference here.

“Mulayam Singh Yadav’s recent rape statement has boosted the morale of criminals.” she said, reacting to SP supremo’s statement that law and order situation in UP was better than the other state.

On financial package to Bundelkhand, Bharti said that discussions were held with the Union Finance Minister and it was decided that a review will be carried out.

“There has been a lot of corruption in the Bundelkhand package and the budget earmarked was also not utilised. A special group is studying on the package and it will prepare new schemes to benefit the area,” she added.
