Slamming the Akhilesh Yadav government for its "failure on all fronts", the BSP on Wednesday said just changing officials looking after the law and order situation would serve no purpose till the chief minister was not clear in his intentions.
"The chief minister's intentions are not clear...He can change as many officials as he likes, it would not put the law and order situation back on tracks," Leader of the Opposition in the state Assembly and senior BSP leader Swami Prasad Maurya said.
He was asked to comment on the transfer of Principal Secretary (Home) Deepak Singhal on Tuesday, within a fortnight after being appointed to the post.
The BSP leader termed the cabinet reshuffle last night as a "mere drama" to divert the peoples' attention from its failures.
Leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Council Naseemuddin Siddiqui, who was also present, also attacked the government saying that it has failed to redress problems being faced by the people.
"Cane farmers are facing immense problems. Why flood relief works, involving a budget of Rs 500 crore to Rs 600 crore started now when rains have started? Where has Rs 50 crore meant for installing solar lights in Lohia villages gone?" Siddiqui asked.
The BSP leader alleged that about 90 per cent of the accused in law and order cases and crimes against women belong to one caste and have direct links with a particular political party.
Siddiqui also demanded the dismissal of the Akhilesh Yadav government.
