politics regarding this case and he was demanding a report from the State Government, which was not under his purview as the victim did not belong to SC category. Instead she belong to backward caste, he pointed out.
Expressing her surprise over the petty politics being indulged by the opposition parties over the law and order and other petty incidents including Banda, Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that the opposition parties should look into their own shady past.

The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji reminded that several other incidents like killing of legislators Krishna Nand Rai and Raju Pal, misbehaviour with the then SP Firozabad by Samajwadi Party (SP) legislator, other incidents of killing and anti-social activities took place during the SP regime and the SP Government hushed up these incidents including killing of SC engineer in Azamgarh, Kavita Chaudhary incident and Madarsa incident of Allahabad. In all these incidents the Samajwadi
Party people were involved and they escaped with the cooperation of the SP Government.
The Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that the other opposition parties like Congress, BJP etc. had the similar record. She reminded that during the BJP regime several killings took place which included killing of Mr. Nirbhay Pal Sharma legislator from Sarsawan, killing of BJP leader Mr.
Santosh Kumar Shukla and Mr. Ajay at the Shivali office, murders of legislator Mr. Manzoor Ahmad, Sharda Rawat, Mahendra Singh Bhati, Indra Bhadra Singh, Bhagwan Baksh Singh etc.

Likewise, the murder of Mr. Vilayati Ram Katyal could not be forgotten. She sought to know from the leaders of these parties as to what were they doing at that time. She further inquired as to what steps these parties took at the killing of former minister Mr. Laxmi Shankar Yadav, former legislator Mr. Om Prakash
Paswan, Mr. Jawahar Singh Yadav and Mr. Brahm Dutt Dwivedi.
The Hon’ble Chief Minister said that BSP was the only party which had not spared Party Ministers, MPs and MLAs over violation of law. An MP belonging to her party had been arrested from her residence for violation of law. She had not been hesitated over taking the action against Anand Sen Yadav Minister and Mr. Anand Sharma MLA from Dibai.Similarly, action had been taken against party MLA when his
name came into light in the murder of executive engineer in Auriyya.
