UP CM for panel to check law & order situation
Contesting allegations that law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh had worsened after he came to power, Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav on Saturday sought setting up of an independent commission by the Centre for surveying the law and order situation in the country.
"The central government should set up a commission to survey the law and order situation in the country and assess, which state were among the most affected," Singh said at the session on Uttar Pradesh at the Third Pravasi Bharatiya Divas in Mumbai.
Claiming that law and order situation had actually improved during his tenure, he said there were problems in the 100-200 villages bordering Nepal, Bihar and Marwar, which would be sorted out in next three months.
Singh said there was a "malicious campaign" launched against him that law and order situation worsened after his coming to power in the state.
He said the situation has improved and there was scope for more improvement.
The Samajwadi Party government had come under attack from the Congress, especially the AICC President Sonia Gandhi, for "deteriorating law and order scenario".
