Facing Opposition attack over the alleged failure to control crime graph in Uttar Pradesh, Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Sunday said in case of any complaint of law and order problem action will now be taken against officers of DIG rank instead of lower staff.

“Constables and sub-inspectors will not be held guilty for law and order problems. Officers of the DIG-rank will be punished in such cases”, Mr. Yadav said while launching Dr Ram Manohar Lohia village housing scheme here.

A record

He claimed that his government has made a record of running Vidhan Sabha sessions and said that in previous BSP regime short sessions were held so that legislators could not air their grievances. PTI
