Ghaziabad, July 9 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday staged a sit-in outside a police station in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad in protest against the deteriorating law and order situation in the state.
Addressing the workers outside Sihani Gate police station, BJP leader and Home Minister Rajnath Singh’s son Neeraj Singh said that it is a state-level programme organised by the party against the deteriorating law and order situation in the state.
“The UP police is extorting money throughout the state. The innocent public is the victim of favouritism, casteism and nepotism. The police stations are being run on contract basis. If the situation is not changed, the BJP would come with a thumping majority in the state,” added Neeraj Singh.
Hundreds of local party workers participated in the agitation against the police.
Neeraj Singh recalled the Mathura case in which innocent police officers had to sacrifice their lives.
Kairana, Mathura, Birada are the burning issues for the upcoming assembly elections in the state and the party is sure it would come to power with a thumping majority.
