Accusing Mayawati government of perpetrating “jungle raj”, the Opposition in Uttar Pradesh today demanded dismissal of the ministry and imposition of
President’s rule in the state.
Demanding a CBI probe into the murder of chief medical officers and the death of a deputy chief medical officer, delegations of the Samajwadi Party led by state president Akhilesh Yadav and the BJP met Governor B L Joshi at Raj Bhawan and submitted separate memorandums which claimed that the state was reeling under a “constitutional crisis”.
“We have demanded that this government should be dismissed as there is a huge constitutional crisis in UP... Women have been raped. MLAs and ministers have gone to jail,” Yadav said.
The SP in its memorandum alleged that it was clear that deputy chief medical officer Y S Sachan, who was found dead in a jail here under mysterious circumstances, did not commit suicide but was killed.
“The manner in which two ministers resigned after the murder of two CMOs indicates that it is a high profile case,” the SP alleged.
The party has demanded that inquiry into murder of CMOs V K Arya and B P Singh and death of Sachan be conducted by the CBI, besides action be taken against the two ministers.
“Resignation of the Chief Minister should be called immediately. If she does not resign on moral grounds, then the government should be dismissed immediately,” it demanded.
The BJP delegation led by state president Surya Pratap Shahi also demanded a CBI probe into CMO cases.
The party asked the Governor to send a report to the Centre on the “constitutional crisis” and the “unconstitutional acts of the state government which are leading to anarchy and jungle raj”.
“An independent inquiry should be conducted into cases of rape, financial assistance should be provided to the victims and trials should be carried out in fast track courts for speedy justice,” the BJP memorandum said.
Asked if they were demanding imposition of President’s Rule in the state, Yadav said, “Yes, if the conditions are there, then President’s rule should be imposed.”

2 more rape cases reported in UP
Incidents of sexual assault continue to haunt Uttar Pradesh, with two fresh cases of alleged rape reported Saturday. The first rape was reported from Faizabad district, while the other from Bahraich district. The victims in both the cases are teenagers.
In Faizabad’s Anjarauli village, a 16-year-old girl was Wednesday abducted and allegedly raped by two men.
“The girl Friday lodged a police compliant following which we arrested the two men, who are in their mid 20s,’’ police inspector Vidya Sagar told IANS Saturday.
“The girl has alleged she was threatened with dire consequences if she approached police. Further investigations are underway. The medical report of the girl is still awaited,” he said. In the second case, a 17-year-old girl was Friday allegedly raped by an owner of a photo studio in Fakharpur town in Bahraich.
“The accused is still absconding. We have registered an FIR against him. The girl has been sent for medical tests. Their reports are awaited,’’ police inspector Brijesh Kumar Yadav told IANS.
In the last fortnight, around a dozen cases of sexual assault and rape have been reported from various districts of Uttar Pradesh.
