Yogi Adityanath should step down as CM if he cannot control lawlessness in UP: Raj Babbar

The Congress on Thursday asked Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath to step down and not to assume the top post till he is ready to bring the "deteriorating" law and order situation in the state under control.

"The state government wants to shirk responsibility by taking action against a few policemen... 103 incidents of loot and 76 killings have taken place since the Adityanath government took over the reins of the state," Uttar Pradesh Congress committee chief Raj Babbar claimed.

He also questioned why the state government has not announced financial assistance for the families of two jewellers killed in the state on Monday.

Babbar said that Uttar Pradesh minister Shrikant Sharma and DGP Sulkhan Singh neither visited the place where the killing took place nor did they meet the protesting traders.

Four killings took place the day they arrived here, he claimed.

"If Adityanath wants to take his time to bring the situation under control, he should assume the post of the chief minister only when he is ready," Babbar said.
