Responding to SP MLA Anup Sanda's vote of thanks motion to Governor's address in the state Assembly, leader of the Opposition BSP's Swami Prasad Maurya said that the claims of government's achievements and developments were a bundle of lies and raised issues of worsening law and order in the state.
    
Alleging that in less than two years of SP rule, 115 riots has taken place, including 15 major ones, Maurya said that neither Hindus, nor Muslims wanted it, but there were ‘some people’ who pit them against each other for their ‘political motives’.     

Asserting that the SP boat has started to rock and would sink in the coming Lok Sabha elections, he said that the crime has increased as action is not being taken against those named in FIRs.    

Maurya, without taking the name of SP chief Mulayam Singh, said that there are other ways to become prime minister than by resorting to riots.
    
On being asked how industrial development would take place when law and order is bad, Maurya warned that SP would regret not taking action against goondas and mafia.
    
The Opposition leader also raised an objection to Mulayam's picture on the free laptops distributed to students, saying that it amounted to publicity through government exchequer.
    
BJP's Hukum Singh made light the claims of government, saying that about 3,500 victims in Muzaffarnagar are still living in relief camps while cases of murder and rape have been framed against 4,000 innocents subjecting them to trouble.
    
This, he said, is an achievement of the government.
    
"It is also an achievement of the government that, at least on three occasions, SP chief (Mulayam) has objected to the functioning of this government," Hukum Singh said.
    
Congress leader Pradip Mathur, terming the government as a failure on all fronts, said, "CM Akhilesh Yadav is educated and wanted to work, but there are so many power centres that he is unable to do anything."
