Mayawati hits out at Akhilesh Yadav
Lucknow, June 10: After facing wrath for lawlessness following the gangrape of two cousins in Badaun, Uttar Pradesh CM Akhilesh Yadav on Tuesday held a law and review meeting in Lucknow.

Yadav met District Magistrates and Superintendents of Police of all 85 districts of the state.

The meeting comes after Yadav faced heavy criticism for not handling the situation in a proper manner, with the NCW even demanding for his resignation.

Meanwhile Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati on Tuesday said in the Rajya Sabha that the Badaun gangrape case must be handed to the CBI for further investigation. She also demanded Presidents Rule in UP over law and order situation.

Hitting out at Samajwadi Party, Mayawati said: "Law and order situation in UP was deteriorating under the Samajwadi Party rule." She added that the SP was sheilding the culprits as they were supporters of the party.

"The victims families say that they have no hope from the UP government," she said. She even said that the Centre was mum over the issue because the BJP supported the SP.
