Priyanka Gandhi has written to the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh over the increasing incidents of crime in the state. The sudden spurt in cases of kidnapping and murders across UP is alarming. The sheer helplessness and inability of UP Police in curbing such crimes speaks volumes about the claims of Ram Rajya being made by the government in the state.
Congress General secretary Priyanka Gandhi has again written a letter to the CM of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath over deteriorating law and order situation in the state.
In the letter, General Secretary, Priyanka Gandhi wrote ,"that recently, through a letter, I tried to draw your attention to the growing criminal incidents in the state. Due to increasing criminal incidents with common people in the day, a sense of fear has been sitting in the minds of the common people of the state. Both Crime and Corona have been unbridled in UP."
The National General Secretary in-charge of Uttar Pradesh has said in the letter that I have heard people say that kidnapping has become an industry in UP and murder is a routine. The state has been shaken by the incidents of robbery and rape. All this indicates only one thing that for some reason or the other, criminals are fearless and the rule of governance and administration is over.
Referring to a criminal incident in Sambhal district, he has written to the Chief Minister that through an incident once again, I want to draw your attention to the poor state of law and order in the entire state. Mr. Ramautar Sharma, living in Chandausi in Sambhal district, retired from the IFFCO Kisan Seva Kendra and ran a fertilizer shop at village Bicheta intersection.
On the way back from the shop in the evening of 30 July 2020, the miscreants shot at Shri Ramautar Sharma and his son and looted their money. Mr. Ramautar Sharma died in this incident and his son narrowly survived. Fury spread throughout the region due to this incident.
Priyanka Gandhi has demanded in the letter that justice should be done to the family of Shri Ramautar Sharma ji by catching the culprits at the earliest. At the same time, the State Government should also announce financial assistance for the family of Ramautar Sharma.
She has written in the letter that there is an atmosphere of fear in UP due to increasing crime incidents. Common people, women, children, businessmen etc. are under the shadow of fear.In the letter, Priyanka Gandhi has requested Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to fix law and order and curb criminal incidents.
Priyanka Gandhi has been writing to the UP CM over the rise in crime in the state but the government has neither responded nor acted appropriately to curb the crime flood.
