During his speech in the Assembly on budgetary allocation to the State Home department, Parmar claimed that law and order situation has completely deteriorated during BJP's 17-year regime.

Citing figures from the National Crime Records Bureau's (NCRB) 2013 report, he said, "As per the NCRB report, serious crimes like murder, attempt to murder, loot, robbery, rioting, etc have gone high in the BJP rule."

Parmar said that between 2001 and 2013, as many as 14,893 cases of murder and 4,979 cases of rape were registered in Gujarat, which is quite alarming and reflects 'Gujarat model' has now turned into a 'crime model'.

The minister taking a note on the recovery of foreign liquor worth Rs 127 crore from various parts of the state last year, said, "We are a 'dry state'. How such a huge amount of liquor entered Gujarat if the government claims to be keeping a strict vigil on criminals?"

Parmar also raised question on the functioning of Gujarat police by giving reference of the recent Supreme Court judgement to acquit six persons booked by the state Anti Terrorist Squad (ATS) in the Akshardham attack case.

"If these six men, arrested by the ATS, were not involved in killing 39 innocent people in Akshardham temple, then the government should find out who all were actually behind the attack. I demand that the government must file an appeal in the Supreme Court to give justice to the families of these 39 victims," said Parmar.
