New Delhi: BJP members in Lok Sabha today demanded the resignation of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav over the rape of a woman and her daughter in Bulandshahr as they hit out at the state government over the law and order situation there.
Raising the issue in the Zero Hour, Bhola Singh, who represents Bulandshahr, alleged that such incidents were happening in the state as criminals enjoyed the government’s “protection”.
“Police is not able to work. The situation in the state is very serious. The Chief Minister should resign,” he said, drawing support from other party members. “Uttar Pradesh is burning,” one of them said. Members of Samajwadi party, which is in power in the state, were seen protesting, with Dharmendra Yadav heard asking the treasury benches to get Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s resignation first.
On Friday night, a group of bandits waylaid a family travelling from Noida to Shahjahanpur by car, dragged the women, including the 13-year-old girl, to a nearby field and raped them while tying up the men accompanying them with ropes. PTI
