'You are safe, aren't you?' UP CM's reply to law and order question

May 30, 2014 19:24 IST

"You are safe aren’t you? I hope you have not faced any danger," shot back Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Friday when asked about the law and order situation in the state in the backdrop of the Badaun gang rape and murder case and the Azamgarh gang-rape incident.

Yadav, who was in Kanpur on a visit, said arrests have been made in the gang rape and murder of two Dalit sisters in Badaun and action was also being taken against guilty police officials.

Asked what was his view on the law and order situation in UP in the wake of the incident, he retorted, "I hope you have not faced any danger!"

When the journalist said, "No", the chief minister said, "Thank you. You should propagate this."

Yadav said a new police control room has come up in Kanpur and added that no other state government has such a set-up.
