BSP supremo Mayawati on Saturday appealed to Orissa government to take stringent measures to control the law and order in the state in the wake of communal violence there.

"The communal violence that has erupted in various districts of Orissa and especially in Kandhamal is an issue of concern. I hope the state government would take strict measures to ensure that people of all communities are able to live in communal harmony," the UP Chief Minister said while speaking to mediapersons in New Delhi.

Mayawati expressed concern over the fact that even after 12 days the violent incidents, the situation continues to remain tense in Orissa, and curfew is still imposed in many violence-affected districts of the state.
