The Chief Minister Mayawati has summoned the conference of district magistrates and SPs on May 19 to review law and order situation in the state. She is likely to issue elaborate guidelines to the officers to effectively implement her “crime-free and fear-free” poll agenda.

Determined to restore rule of law Mayawati has completely overhauled the police administration in the state during the last three days. Shake-up has given ample indication to the officers to pull up socks or face action. Most of the SPs have already been changed.

“They have been posted not to take rest but to perform,” remarked Director General of Police GL Sharma.

Sharma told HT on Wednesday “right officers have been posted at right places”. Referring to deployment of the armed guards with Mafiosi-turned politicians the DGP said “those who don’t deserve would not be given security cover”.

However specter of caste violence has been haunting the police officers. Mafiosi attacked Dalits’ wedding party in Etah and Firozabad on Monday. According to information Mafisoi attacked Dalit grooms in Narkhi police circle in Firozabad and in a village in Etah. In another caste violence a Dalit youth was killed in Etah and statue of Dr BR Ambedkar had been damaged. The police have registered case against the criminals. During the BSP regime in the past also there had been caste clashes and the police had then resorted to slapping of Harijan Act against accused.

However the DGP laying stress on improving law and order, said “slackness would not be tolerated on the part of the officers”. He said “from the SPs to lower level efficient officers have been posted”. Sharma said “officers should either show result or face action”. He said irrespective political affiliations action would be taken against the criminals. The DGP has also issued instructions to the SPs to be available to the people every day for two hours.
