Rampur, Jun 5: SP leader Azam Khan on Thursday asked retired government and army officials owing allegiance to BJP, to refrain from issuing statements which might harm the federal structural of the country.

Azam was reacting to a statement from a former bureaucrat on the law and order condition in the state.

Against the backdrop of the state grappling with incidents of rape and murder, BJP MP and former Union Home Secretary R K Singh yesterday had said, UP was a fit case for the President's rule as the state has "completely failed" to control law and order.

These retired officers have been busy in implementing "saffron agenda", he alleged and added, "by doing so they wanted to create a chaotic condition leading to a civil war-like situation".

"Why have these retired officers not considered about the worst situation in various other states like West Bengal and Bihar and concentrated only on UP," he said.

Azam also asked them to practise impartiality in their speech, just as they did while performing their official duties. "You have learnt the lesson of impartiality, so please practise that in post-retirement period too," he said.
