Uttar Pradesh PWD minister and Samajwadi Party spokesperson Shivpal Singh Yadav told reporters in Lucknow that the Government took ‘immediate and strict action’ in Badaun case.
    
He said that the SP-led government accepted the demand of the victims' family members and immediately ordered for a CBI probe into the matter.
    
Referring to National Crime Record Bureau data he claimed that the percentage of incidents of rape and crime against women in Uttar Pradesh was the lowest.
    
Yadav said that despite all the efforts, the Opposition leaders are going to Badaun and indulging in politics which is ‘unfortunate’.
    
Yadav lashed out at BSP supremo Mayawati saying that before raising a finger at the SP government, she should introspect about how the state fared during her rule.
