Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath today went on to say that the state was now violence free and further went on to say that the state witnessed a new level of anarchy and violence after 1990 as there had been governments of BSP and SP during this period.
“There were rapes, murder, looting and corruption (earlier). This gave an identity crisis to youths and forced farmers to commit suicide. The state witnessed hundreds of communal riots during the last regime of Samajwadi Party. But in the last two years, there has been no communal incident,” he said.
The Chief Minister claimed there was no political interference in police work since he took office on this day in 2017 and said the law and order in the state was under control.
Adityanath said the Congress, which ruled Uttar Pradesh for the longest time since independence, brought the state under the BIMARU (sick) category, forcing youths to migrate in search of employment.
BIMARU as an acronym stood for Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh, which were once considered the most backward states economically.
The Chief Minister said that “members of the majority community” who were forced to leave their homes in Kairana and Kandhla in Uttar Pradesh due to fear of anti-social elements were returning to their homes.
