New Delhi: Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday attacked the Uttar Pradesh government over its decision to do away with 25,000 home guards and asked what sort of "craziness" has taken over the mind of the dispensation.
The Congress general secretary made the remarks after the BJP government in the state on Tuesday announced that it was doing away with 25,000 home guards as the state could not afford the new allowances the Supreme Court has asked it to pay.
However, the UP government reversed its decision hours later, saying no one would be removed.
भाजपा सरकार ने उत्तर प्रदेश में काम कर रहे 25000 होमगार्डों को दिवाली से कुछ ही दिन पहले नौकरी से निकाल देने का फ़ैसला किया है।— Priyanka Gandhi Vadra (@priyankagandhi) October 16, 2019
प्रदेश की कानून व्यवस्था एकदम खराब है। ऐसे में ज़्यादा प्रहरी और पुलिसबल की जरूरत पड़ती है लेकिन भाजपा सरकार के सर पर पता नहीं कौन सा फ़ितूर सवार है।
She also alleged that the law and order situation in the state is in a bad shape.
"In such a scenario, more guards and police force is needed, but don't know what craziness has taken over the mind of the BJP government," she said.
Congress leader Jitin Prasada also questioned the government's decision and asked if it had a plan to rehabilitate them or just leave them and their families without an income. (PTI)
