Welcoming Supreme Court's decision to give provisional appointment to 22,000 constables sacked by the Uttar Pradesh government in 2007, Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav on Monday said that if Chief Minister Mayawati had "some morality", she should immediately resign from her post.
"After the Supreme Court's decision, if Mayawati has some morality she should immediately resign from the post of chief minister", Yadav told reporters after a party legislators meet in Lucknow.
"If Mayawati does not resign, we will meet Governor and President to demand dismissal of her government', he said.
These constables were appointed by the previous Mulayam Singh Yadav regime in the state. They were sacked by the Mayawati government as soon she came to power in 2007 alleging large scale anomalies in their appointment.
