Law and Order in ‘Shambles’: Former BJP Member Savitribai Phule Slams Yogi Adityanath Government
The Bahraich Member of Parliament also said that the country could only be governed “by the constitution.”
Savitribai Phule, former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Member of Parliament, reportedly, criticised the Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government in Uttar Pradesh for the slackening of law and order in the state, on Monday, December 31, 2018.
According to ANI, Phule said, “Law and order in the state of Uttar Pradesh is completely in shambles. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister is no more capable of governing the state, proof of which can be seen through different news reports.”
Phule also called out the BJP government for the lack of progress in the country and said that it depended on the implementation of the Constitution and not through “temples or Kumbh Melas”.
“While the scheduled caste and tribes are fighting for their rights and employment, the Uttar Pradesh government is spending crores in the name of Kumbh and temples,” Phule told ANI. She added, “Can Kumbh or temple feed people of schedule caste, tribes and Muslim community. The government wants to divert people’s attention and hence is spending money on Kumbh. The country cannot be governed by a temple or God but by the Constitution.”
The 38-year-old is a first-time MP from Uttar Pradesh’s Bahraich, a reserved constituency. Earlier, on December 6, 2018, the Dalit MP quit the party stating that it was “trying to create divisions in the society”.
