Asserting that the law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh was worse thanwhat prevailed in Bihar during the RJD regime, Leader of Opposition LK Advani on Tuesday demanded immediate imposition of President's Rule in the state.

Addressing the BJP Parliamentary Party meeting in New Delhi, he said the law and order situation in the state was deteriorating with every passing day under the Mulayam Singh Yadav Government.

He said that it has become "worse" than the conditions that prevailed in Bihar during the rule of Rabri Devi and Lalu Prasad.

BJP Parliamentary Party spokesman Vijay Kumar Malhotra was talking to reportersin New Delhiafter the hour-long meeting chaired by Advani.

The former BJP chief also asked MPs to effectively "expose" the UPA Government's "failures" on all fronts in their respective constituencies, particularly with regard to inflation and rise in prices.

Responding to a suggestion from party General Secretary Pramod Mahajan, Advani expressed concern over the "aggressive minorityism" being pursued by the Congress Government in Assam ahead of the Assembly elections in the state. He asked party MPs to devote maximum energies to counter the same.

Earlier, party president Rajnath Singh announced that the party would observe March 20-26 as "anti-inflation week" and organise country wide protests against the rising prices of essential commodities such as foodgrains and lentils.
