BHARATIYA JANATA Party national vice-president and former chief minister Kalyan Singh said the country was looking towards the Kauriram by-election as a referendum on the SP-led State Government’s policies. He said though the result of the by-election would have no impact on the future of the government, but it would give a message to the society that people had rejected the SP.

Addressing a public meeting at Sewain Bazar in favour of party candidate Shital Pandey, Kalyan Singh called upon party workers to ensure his victory.

He said the people of Mohammadabad had rejected the SP government and expressed hope that the same result would be repeated here.

Criticising the government for its failure to check cases of crime in the State, Singh alleged murders were being committed in police stations and jails.

He further said the SP was promoting terrorism in the State and criticised Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav for not visiting Ayodhya after the terrorist attack there .

Terming the serial bomb blasts at Varanasi an intelligence failure, Singh said though the government was aware that temples and maths were the target of terrorists, it did not make  security arrangements. He also expressed concern over a rapid increase in minority population.
