The Chief Minister also claimed to have taken all the possible steps in the Budaun rape case. The Chief Minister also claimed to have taken all the possible steps in the Budaun rape case.

Reffering to the Badaun gangrape-murder of two minor girls, Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav Tuesday claimed criminal cases of UP alone were being “purposely” publicised by “cunning people” and the “media”.

Citing law and order incidents of Bangalore, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, he asked the mediapersons to “google search” those incidents as well.

“An incident took place in Bangalore, did it come to national limelight? Cases are happening in Madhya Pradesh also. I came to know a Minister’s relative’s chain was snatched near her house. Even incidents took place in Rajasthan. But it is only those in UP that are purposely highlighted more and even more by cunning people.”

The Chief Minister also claimed to have taken all the possible steps in the Budaun rape case.

“When the Budaun case came to light, we took all possible steps and even recommended a CBI inquiry. While incidents take place in other states as well and you can google search the figures, but incidents in UP are highlighted more,” the CM said.

Meanwhile, a day after giving orders for 24-hour electricity supply to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s constituency Varanasi, Akhilesh asked the Centre to return the favour and lend electricity to UP for at least a year in the name of the the BJP’s “big victory” in the state.

“They (BJP) have got so many MPs and even the Prime Minister’s seat is here. So, they should lend us electricity for at least a year and we would return it to them in 2016,” he said after the state cabinet meeting on Tuesday.

He said when the the state government fulfilled the wish of the BJP MLA sitting on fast for uniterrupted power supply to Varanasi, the central government, too, should consider giving electricity to the state, at least in accordance with the set quota.

    Clean your own as_before looking further away for dirtiest ones. Always remember Mr.CM that charity begins from home. What can be expected from voters in UP who elects like minded father & then his son who not only are corrupts,but also foul mouthed s & egomaniacs.

          What's the meaning of referring such incidents to other states. Absurd.

            Mr Yadav clean your house before talking about others, take quick action and conduct a thorough investigation and take the ultimate severe action against the culprits. A back ground check on entire police force personal has to be conducted and the officers have to be given strict orders to follow up on every single case. The rape and hanging of the girls who were still alive is the most horrifying thing and cannot be taken lightly. It is a shame on you and a blot on the police force lower your head in shame and take necessary action. The world is watching and horrified with what took place in your state so take action fast and be furious instead of showing apathy.

              Instead of searching Google for such incidents in other states the CM could have thought of taking measures to control such inhuman incidents in his own state.
