Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju also slammed the Uttar Pradesh government, led by Akhilesh Yadav, over the law and order situation.

"This should not be taken as some politics being done by us because their government is of a different party. Whatever the government — whether of our party or of some other party, everybody is worried if the law and order is not good," Rijiju said.

Lashing out at the ruling Samajwadi Party in UP, senior BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi alleged the state government had failed.

"The result is administrative incompetence... the administrative chaos is clearly visible," he said.

Former Congress MP Rashid Alvi said "we are very much worried about the law and order situation in UP. We have time and again suggested that the UP government should take care of it. Whatever is happening is very unfortunate. Strict action should be taken."

Alvi, however, made it clear that his party is not demanding the resignation of the Akhilesh Yadav government.

The reactions of the Union Home Minister and leaders of various political parties come in the backdrop of a spurt in criminal incidents in the the state recently like alleged rape of a woman in front of her children in Badaun, killing of two police constables, burning alive of a labourer and molestation of a French woman.
