The Samajwadi Party warned former chief minister Mayawati to stop inciting passion among Dalits by misleading them about parks and statues,else the state government will be forced to take action against her. Reacting to Mayawati’s remarks that any interference with parks and memorials built during her regime will lead to a law and order problem,SP spokesperson Rajendra Choudhary stated that Mayawati was doing this only to conceal her misdeeds.

“She paints other parties as anti-Dalit. Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has announced that no statue in any memorial will be touched but only open spaces will be utilised for hospitals and educational institutions. But still Mayawati is spreading confusion. It is better she should restrain herself,else the law and order agencies will take strict action for inciting passion,” said Choudhary.

Choudhary stated that Mayawati tried to earn sympathy by projecting herself as a “Dalit ki beti” but she is,in fact,“daulat ki beti”. “During her regime no Dalit was able to meet her. Those who tried were thrown behind bars’’,said Choudhary.

Taking a dig at Mayawati’s remark about the threat to her life,Choudhary said that she is apprehensive about her misdeeds. “In fact,the biggest threat to her life is she herself,” he said.

PWD Minister Shivpal Yadav too reacted,“No one is facing life threat in the SP government,except Mayawati. She is afraid because she is involved in a number of scams.”

Discipline among party members is biggest challenge for new govt: Naqvi

LUCKNOW: A day after Samajwadi Party came out with a list of the achievements of its government in the past one month,the Uttar Pradesh Congress on Monday criticised incidents of lawlessness and said “the biggest challenge before the SP government so far has been to discipline its own party workers.”

In a statement,party spokesman Hilal Naqvi said,“So far,the government has only given warnings to such people and has been hesitant in taking strict action for indiscipline,be it riding a horse at the railway station or workers clashing with the PAC.”

He said Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav’s order to ensure uninterrupted power supply from 6pm to 10pm during board examinations has failed to change the situation.

“It was a significant order but its impact could not be seen in the state and even today the condition of power supply is pitiable,” said Naqvi.
