Mulayam meets Akhilesh, officers on Muzaffarnagar violence

Lucknow, Sep 9, 2013 (PTI):
With the situation still tense in Muzaffarnagar, SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav today held a meeting with Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and senior officers and took stock of the situation.

Yadav sought to know from the officers why the situation could not be controlled yet and the measures taken for maintaining law and order in Muzaffarnagar.

The meeting holds significance after Governor B L Joshi's report to the Centre in which he gave details of the incident and also lapses on part of the government.

"Mulayam is serious about what happened in Muzaffarnagar...the incident is condemnable. Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav is himself monitoring the situation till 2 AM in the night," SP spokesman and Cabinet minister Rajendra Chowdhury told reporters after the meeting.

Asked whether officers are not paying heed to the Chief Minister, Chowdhury said, "No officer has the courage to defy orders of the CM."

Claiming that opposition was working in an undemocratic way, Chowdhury alleged they were involved in inciting and fuelling passions and added that demand for imposition of President's Rule by BJP, Congress and BSP was "unjustified".

"We stopped 84 kosi yatra and thwarted attempt to communalise atmosphere of the state...In Muzaffarnagar incident also, action will be taken against those who had taken law into their hands," Chowdhury said.

Chief Secretary Javed Usmani, DGP Devraj Nagar and Principal Secretary Home, R M Srivastava also attended the meeting.

Mulayam had yesterday held a meeting in which he had pulled up senior officials for their failure in taking timely action to check the violence.

When asked why permission for panchyat (called by a particular community on Saturday) was given when the situation was tense there, Chowdhury said this would be looked into.

"We will look into as to how panchayat was held there...The entire incident will be probed," he said.
