Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav, under attack over rising crime in Uttar Pradesh, on Thursday assured investors the law and order situation in the state was not only “good” but “better” than many other parts of the nation.

“It (law and order situation) is good in UP and better than in many other states… That is why they (investors) have come in such large numbers,” Yadav told an investors’ conclave which was organised by his government.

Be it any government, it has to continuously work on law and order, he said adding “my government too is working to improve matters”.  The CM claimed the “big” participation by investors at the meet was evidence that law and order situation was alright in UP.

Uttar Pradesh, meanwhile, has succeeded to win over Rs Rs 39,000 crore investments  from Mukesh Ambani group firm Reliance Jio, Fortis Healthcare, ITC and 17 other firms that signed MoUs with the state government.

    Is this a joke? Women getting raped and hanged in public, and they call it safe? I really think that the current governance does not know what safety means, and these people shouldn't be taken seriously. The day they realize and start making the place actually safe, I'll consider what they say.
