Raising questions on the law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh, BSP chief Mayawati demanded that the leadership should be changed or president’s rule be imposed in the state.
Referring to the deaths of two young women in Hathras and Balrampur regions in the state, she said the incidents are reminiscent of the 2012 Nirbhaya gang-rape and murder case in Delhi.
“In the wake of the law and order situation in the state and the flood of crimes against women, the central government should replace Yogi Adityanath with some ”kaabil’ (capable) person and if this is not possible, president”s rule should be imposed in the state,” Mayawati said.

“I want to say to Yogi Adityanath that you are born from the womb of a woman. You should consider the sisters and daughters of others as your sister and daughter. If you are unable to protect them, you should resign,” she asserted.
A 22-year-old Dalit woman died after allegedly being raped by two men in Uttar Pradesh’s Balrampur district, succumbing to critical injuries on the same day as the teen from Hathras in the state who breathed her last in a Delhi hospital two weeks after she was gangraped.
