Akhilesh Yadav
Lucknow, Sept 20: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav seems to be scared of losing business following hullabaloos over Muzaffarnagar riot in his state. Issuing a statement in the state assembly on Friday, Sept 20, the young CM said that they have to maintain the law and order situation to ensure safety to people.

Speaking at the assembly, Akhilesh said, "We will have to work on the law and order situation regularly to bring the state on the top of the list of developed states. If the situation is not improved, those willing to invest will turn away from UP."

Trying to hide himself from all criticism, the CM sought a report from the Union Home Minister which shows that the maximum number of riots took place in the state during the BSP government's tenure in 2007-2008.

Earlier Akhilesh had slammed the BJP for triggering riot in the sensitive area such as Muzaffarnagar and adjoining area. Slamming BJP leader Sangeet Som, Akhilesh on Thursday, Sept 19 claimed that BJP allegedly had used social media and mobile phones to circulate a fake video.

The video, which was circulated in the sensitive region of the state ahead of the deadly riot which broke out on Sept 7, showed how a group of Muslim men had attacked and killed two Jat boys.

"What happened in Muzaffarnagar is a well-thought out strategy. One political party has tried to draw political mileage. They used social media to trigger a riot," said Akhilesh without taking BJP party leaders' names.

However, investigating agencies claimed that the video was shot two years back either in Afghanistan or in Pakistan. Earlier the video was circulated saying that it was shot in Muzaffarnagar. The riot left more than 50 dead and many injured.
