Himself hailing from the hotbed of crime in Gorakhpur, Yogi Adityanath is of the view that a nexus between the underworld and tainted politicians can be broken only through the assistance of tough law such as UPCOCA.

It is worthwhile mentioning that Mayawati had first introduced UPCOCA in 2007 to end the reign of powerful mafia dons who had strong connections with politicians.

The Mayawati government had sent UPCOCA for presidential assent at time of Manmohan Singh being the Prime Minister, but the approval was denied.
