    The criminals in U.P will not allow Yogi C.M to do any constructive work for the economic devlopement welfare of the weaker sections of the society.They will go on raising issues which are irrelevent.The criminal incidents taking place have been well planned there is a deliberate attempt to accelerate these so that the Govt becomes dysfunctional.Yogi has to take very very strong steps to make the police force to perform its duty.The corruption,indiscipline lack of will to work has to be removed with an iron hand.My solution is --remove from service a few without following the laid down proceedure.Let them go to court fight their cases.It will have a salutatory effect on others.Even if they win their cases,they get chastised.I have tried this formula with success.Yogi put all protestors in jail more particularly the students who are more interested in politics than in their studies.Yogi rule the state with an iron hand as U.P has earned a very bad name.

      Dear Editorial Team of Indian Express, You have failed miserably in putting proper headline to this news article. You couldn’t prioritize between inciting murder of a chief minister vs his derogatory picture! You are either Fox Friends or CNN , but both are equally bad for a impartial and independent news.

            India is heading towards talibanization under the brutal dictatorship of Modi. RSS terrorists are kil minorities. It is high time that US forces interven and hunt them down.
