BJP President Amit Shah is planning to send a team of BJP office bearers to UP to assess the law and order in the state where it charged that people are living in "jungle raj".
"The law and order in the state is going from bad to worse and it is very much a 'jungle raj'. The team will go to UP and present a report to the party," Party secretary Shrikant Sharma said.
Referring to the recent cases of crimes in which a woman died at a police station in Barabanki and a journalist was allegedly set on fire by cops, Sharma said the state government was protecting those guilty as no proper action was being taken.
"It is bizarre that the journalist in his dying declaration named a UP minister but Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav is instead protecting him. The chief minister's office has become a refuse for criminals," Sharma said.
