Vijayawada, Nov 24 (UNI) Samajwadi Party Chief and former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Mulayam Singh Yadav today condemned the simultaneous blasts in Lucknow, Faizabad and Varanasi and blamed his successor Mayawati for not taking precautionary steps to ward off the attack on the courts.

Talking to newspersons after a meeting of the UNPA leaders, Mr Singh said the meeting expressed condolence to the families of the dead and wanted all possible help and assistance be provided to the injured people.

Mr Yadav said the danger signals were already with the authorities when the terrorist attack had taken place in Ayodhya where the police were able to gun down all the five attackers.

Yesterday, three blasts had taken place and none had been apprehended so far, he said.

Taking a dig at the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, he said she seemed to blame the Centre for not passing on the information. Law and Order is a state subject and the state also has Intelligence apparatus and cannot shift its blame on the Centre.

For her, there are only two terrorists -- Mulayam Singh Yadav and Amar Singh and all her attention was on foisting false cases on Samajwadi Party workers. Over 200 people were facing severe cases.

''She has only two tasks -- make money and finish Samajwadi Party,'' he remarked.

He said the UNPA considered the law and order scenario in the entire country right from the naxalism dogging the states of Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand.

In Jharkhand, former Chief Minister Babulal Marandi's son had fallen to the bullets only recently and the whole country was aware of the situation Assam faced.

''The country never faced terrorism to the extent witnessed in the country,'' he said.

The leaders demanded dismissal of Jharkhand government led by an Indpendent and the ministers towing their own independent line. The state had no law or order and it deserved to be dismissed, Mr Singh said.

A team of UNPA would be visiting the blast spots in Uttar Pradesh tomorrow.

He said several reports including the Justice Sachar Committee on Muslim Status and Vice President Hamid Ansari's report on Jammu and Kashmir were all rusting and nobody knew the status of these reports.

On Nandigram, the UNPA said there should be no politics and the situation there was very serious. ''Some innocents have been killed, so also Marxists,'' he said.
