LUCKNOW: Shocked by the present scenario, the Indian Institute of Management here advised Yogi Government to ‘ improve law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh to bring more investment’. This observation was made when experts of IIM prepared road map for the development of UP during day-long interactive session attended by CM Yogi Adiyanath and his ministers at the campus.
It would be worth mentioning here that despite two Investment summits first by PM Narendra Modi himself and another by Union Home Minister Amit Shah there, has not led to desired investment by the leading industrialists of the country. What could be worst commentary on deteriorating law and order situation that a couple tried to immolate inside the Thana in Mathura during last week. It so happened the couple had visited the Thana with their complaints of harassment by local goons were not taken seriously by the local police officials.
The couple had visited Thana several times but local policemen under the influence of goons did not take any action. Now the couple with 60 percent burn injuries were rushed to Delhi for treatment.
In another incident civil contractor Avdesh shot himself inside the office of Chief engineer in Varanasi.
Avdesh left six-page suicide note. Avdesh mentioned how he was being harassed by PWD engineers who were asking huge commission. The manner in which an amount of Rs 10 cores was denied to contractor by PWD bosses speaks for large scale corruption.
The callous attitude of the government toward rape victim of Unnao now under treatment in AIIMS Delhi. No complaints were lodged by the local police against BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Denver. It was only when rape victim tried to commit suicide then only complaints were lodged. The MLA was so powerful the he connived with the local police and got arrested the father of rape victim and was killed in police custody.
The family of powerful BJP MLA was constantly threatening the rape victim and other family members of rape victim. Recently the entire family of rape victim was injured in a car accident by the speedy truck. Two members of the were killed while rape victim and her lawyer were seriously injured. It was alleged that powerful BJP MLA was involved in the car accident to eliminate the entire family.
When it appeared that nobody in the family would remain safe in UP due clout of BJP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar the Supreme Court took the cognizance of the letter written by the rape victim. The orders issued by Supreme Court is virtually indictment of Yogi government.
Supreme Court directed that the trial be shifted to Delhi and also directed the accused Kuldeep Singh Sengar from UP jail to Thar Jail in Delhi.
Not satisfied the protection from UP police, Supreme Court provided security cover to rape victim from central government. Supreme Court also directed CBI probe to investigate the car accident in which rape victim and her lawyer were seriously injured while two members of family were killed.
The issue of deterioration in law and order situation was raised during recent session of UP legislature by the opposition. During question hour the cabinet minister Suresh Khanna released the data which showed the deterioration in law and order situation.
According to government reply from the period when Yogi Adiyanath became CM till May 9, 2019 as many as 799 murders were reported with 803 cases of rape, 799 cases of loot and 2682 cases of kidnapping. Government defence that large of number cases were due to liberal nature of registration of cases failed to satisfy the opposition which accused Yogi Government for failure to check law and order situation.
