Former Uttar Pradesh governor and treasurer of All India Congress Committee Moti Lal Vora on Saturday expressed concern over the prevailing law and order situation in the state.
He, however, clarified at the same time that the issue of imposing the President's rule came under the purview of the Governor, who would decide on it within the Constitutional parameters.
Inaugurating a conference of the Congress Sewa Dal, Vora quoted Indira Gandhi that one should keep doors and windows open to allow the wind of change into one's house.
He urged the Sewa Dal volunteers to work devotedly for the party as the people were fed up with the misrule of various parties and were looking up to the Congress.
Vora was in the city to review the ongoing construction work of the Indira Gandhi Pratishthan.
Earlier, along with Chandra Bhushan Pandey, who has been appointed observer by the High Court, Vora went to review the construction of the Indira Gandhi Pratishthan in Gomti Nagar.
He was informed by the engineers involved in the construction that 90 per cent work had been completed with a two-storey committee room, a hall and a library.
A sum of Rs 72.30 crore has been spent on the Pratishthan so far.
