UP’S ABYSMAL LAW AND OR­DER

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - - Region -

The law and or­der sit­u­a­tion in Ut­tar Pradesh is in an abysmal state and should be a mat­ter of con­cern for the BJP. Two po­lice of­fi­cers are lynched in a month by armed mobs, and chief min­is­ter Yogi Adityanath calls it ac­ci­den­tal. A good thing is that the po­lar­is­ing cam­paign by Yogi did not strike a chord with the lo­cal pop­u­la­tion of states, where elec­tions were held re­cently. If Namo de­sires to re­tain power, the loud-mouth Yogi needs to be un­seated, and asked to do what he does best, chant­ing shlokas and feed­ing cows, es­pe­cially in view of the up­com­ing Lok Sabha polls, as he has be­come a li­a­bil­ity for the BJP, and the race is now much more bal­anced be­tween the BJP and the Op­po­si­tion. No more a cake-walk.
