BJP President Amit Shah on Friday called off his foot march in Meerut after the murder of a businessman's son. Shah also lashed out at Samajwadi Party government for making Uttar Pradesh India's crime capital and vowed to make it a poll issue.
“The morale of criminals is so high in the state, even police personnel are not safe let alone the common man. The way incidents of crime against the common man have risen under the Akhilesh Yadav government, an atmosphere of fear and terror prevails in the state.
“BJP will fight for the issue of law and order in the streets of Uttar Pradesh and Parliament as well. Restoring the law and order and sending criminals behind bars will be our priority after a BJP government is formed,” he said in tweets.
24-year-old Abhishek was killed last night when he was with his father Sushil Verma, who owns a gutka business along with three workers near his house at Sharda road in Brahmpuri area.
Addressing a rally in Pilkhuwa of Hapur in Uttar Pradesh on Friday, Shah said, “Rahul Baba should answer, what did they do in two and a half years for Kashmir? But you won't be affected because you are wearing an Italian chashma.”
