Congress asks Adityanath to step down from CM post
 
(Mathura, May 19, 2017): The Congress today asked Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to step down and not assume the top post till he is ready to control the "deteriorating" law and order situation in the state.

"The state government wants to shirk responsibility by taking action against a few policemen. 103 incidents of loot and 76 killing have taken place ever since the Adityanath government took over the reins of the state," Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee chief Raj Babbar claimed.

He also questioned why the state government has not announced a financial assistance for the families of two jewellers, Megh and Vikas, killed here on Monday.

Babbar said UP minister Shrikant Sharma and DGP Sulkhan Singh neither visited the place where the killing took place nor did they meet the protesting traders.

Four killings took place the day they arrived here, he claimed.

"If Yogi Aditynath wants to take time to bring the situation under control he should assume the post of chief minister when he is ready," he said.

The trader community has been protesting against the killing of the two jewellers in Koyalawali Gali here for the last three days.

The issue had on Tuesday resonated in the state assembly, with the opposition parties claiming that the law and order situation was deteriorating in the state.

Three police officials were yesterday suspended in the wake of the killing and the police were given three days to nab the culprits. (PTI)
