100 people being killed daily in UP, claims BJP
Lucknow, Mar 1 (UNI) Leader of Opposition and BJP legislature party leader Lalji Tandon today alleged that total ''anarchy'' prevailed in Uttar Pradesh under the Mulayam Singh Yadav government.
Claiming that at least 100 people were being killed in the state every day, Mr Tandon said the Mulayam Singh government has failed on all the fronts.
Intiating the debate on the budgetary grants 2006-2007 in the state assembly here, the BJP leader asked the government to narrate even one achievement.
The leader, referring to yesterday's Allahabad High Court judgement in the 40 rebel BSP MLAs case, urged the speaker to give his ruling at the earliest so that any confusion about the verdict was removed.
Criticising the Uttar Pradesh Development Council, he said it had only provided platform to the industrialists to ''loot'' the state exchequer.
''It is unfortunate that none of the honest officials were interested in staying in the state, where corruption is at its peak.'' he added, On the announcement of Unemployment Allowance by the CM during his budget speech, Mr Tandon questioned from where would the money come to pay the allowance.
''The government will require at least Rs 144 crore per month to pay the unemployment allowances to 2.8 million youths in the state,'' he claimed.
Criticising the state government for not spending the alloted amount sanctioned for development by the planning commission, he said over Rs 5,000 crore had been left unspent by the government during the current financial year.
Later, Congress member Jagdambika Pal, participating in the debate also criticised the government on different issues.
