EXPRESSING CONCERN over closure of the Lucknow University Chief minister Mulayam Singh Yadav said that the state government “within its limits” would ensure reopening of the institution. Yadav said there should be no further educational loss to the students because of the fast approaching annual examinations.
Talking to newsmen after addressing the foundation day function of PAC here on Wednesday the chief minister said that all aspects of the issue were under active consideration of the government. However, the chief minister refused to comment on the statement of Vice-Chancellor RP Singh, who had even threatened to take legal recourse to maintain peace on the campus. Yadav had blasted the V-C for adopting dictatorial attitude during the debate on the issue in the state assembly. But the chief minister today said that normalcy should be restored on the campus.
The chief minister also gave hints about a probe into the murder of kidnapped boy Ankit. Yadav said the opposition had been raking up UP’s law and order issue whereas the situation was worse in Delhi. He said as compared to other states, the crime situation was far better in UP. Earlier, addressing the police officers the chief minister said the state had been able to make rapid development only because of improved law and order. He also appreciated the role of PAC in the anti-dacoity operation in Chambal. He said PAC’s quick action in elimination of terrorists had averted a major problem in Ayodhya. He said the PAC had also done laudable work in Punjab and north-east. Accepting the demands of the PAC the chief minister announced Rs 25 crore assistance for various schemes. He especially granted Rs 2 crore for the purchase of vehicles in view of the forthcoming assembly election and Ardha Kumbha.
Earlier, the ADG PAC A Palanivel enumerated the achievements of the force. He said during the last three years two more battalions had also been raised.
Palanivel said now the PAC strength had gone up from 249 companies to 273. He said 5,256 persons were recruited in PAC during the last two years. He said the PAC had also earned revenue of Rs 147 crore on its deployment in other states.
