Accusing the BJP of blowing out of proportion minor incidents of violence in Uttar Pradesh, Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Friday affirmed that there is no law and order problem in the state and the government is keeping a close watch on all “troublemakers”.

“The BJP men used to stand near police stations. As soon as they would come to know about any dispute in any village, they would encourage it and blow up the issue,” he told reporters when asked about law and order problem in the state.

“There is no problem in the state. The government has acted promptly whenever any issue came to light. We are keeping an eye on trouble makers,” Yadav said.

Ruling Samajwadi Party (SP) has been alleging that the opposition parties were trying to defame the state government for political mileage by flaring up law and order issues.

    Media is there to provide information to public. In a democracy media plays an important role to inform the public as truthfully as possible. Journalism too has ethics, dos and don'ts.But today's material world journalists too fall into worldly desires added with media squeezing their monetary benefits. The folly of the media is to underestimate the public. A discerning public provided with slanted editorials and owners of the media with vested interests adds to the magnitude of misinformation. But a controlled media is even worse like in China or Singapore. The choice is lesser of the too evils.

    Media is not your Bible. Medias are sold out to foreign funded women power and BJP. Media finds rape in not BJP states. Media supprt criminal women who files false rape/ual/498a cases on men. As per sol out corrupt medias, all men are rapist and there is no criminal women who should be punished. Media help to reate laws to punish victim men. Police, govt, medias are corrupt and sold out and they are not your GOD.

    Not all men are rapists, only rapists are rapists. Media finds rape cases where ever they occur and report them. Don't divert the issue and give it different colour.

    Ok, let us ume for argument's sake that BJP and other opposition parties are raising the issue of lawlessness in your state because they want to gain political mileage! What about the media? No day pes with out some problem or the other of UP getting reported. Are they too biased against you? Please don't blame others for your govt's inefficiency.There is no smoke without fire!! And, there is a lot of fire in your state. Be sensitive to the issues Sir. People want action, not explanations.
