Lucknow, Feb 13 (UNI) Leader of the Opposition in the Uttar Pradesh legislative assembly and Samajwadi Party legislature party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav today alleged that undeclared emergency had been clamped in the state by the BSP government through unconstitutional and undemocratic means.

Hitting hard at Chief Minister Mayawati over her security threat, he said ''Leaders who only think about their own security could never serve the nation or people.'' Besides, he also mentioned that people in the entire country were cracking jokes on the security of the UP CM.

''Bad law and order crippled with rampant corruption and fake cases against the political opponents were the achievements of the ten-month old government,'' he said adding that similar situation was only witnessed during Emergency in 1975.

Initiating the debate in the assembly on the motion of thanks to the Governor's address, Mr Yadav demanded that the government should immediately waive off all the loans of the farmers in the Bundelkhand region besides reinstating the students' union poll and the dissolved cooperative societies.

The former CM claimed that if his party came to power, the farmers' loans would be waived. He said the present government would collapse shortly under its own pressure.

''My government will also reinstate the dismissed over 18,000 cops from the date of their dismissal when my government comes to power,'' he further hinted.

In his over two-hour-long speech in the presence of Ms Mayawati, Mr Yadav spared nothing to criticise the state government with hitting hard on the bureaucracy close to the government.

''Appointment of a non-IAS cadre officer to the post of cabinet secretary is a gross violation of the constitutional norms,'' he added.

The House witnessed some uproar when Mr Yadav made some comment over collection of funds through illegal means by the police and government officials to be given to the higher-ups in the government.
