The Hon’ble Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Ms. Mayawati ji has termed the statement of the Union Home Minister Mr. P. Chidambaram, in which he said that outsiders were responsible for increasing crime in Delhi, as irresponsible and malicious. She said that the Union Home
Minister should apologise to the people of the country. Hon’ble Chief Minister ji said that Delhi was the capital of the country and people of the country had a right to live in Delhi. She said that Mr. Chidambaram had been talking about the North Indians like other irresponsible persons. She
said that it seems Mr. Chidambaram was trying to hide his weaknesses through this statement. Ms. Mayawati ji said that owing to the anti-poor and
anti-labour policies of the Congress government, which ruled Country and States for a long time, the people of Northern states had to migrate to Delhi and other big cities in search of employment. She said that even though the North Indians had been contributing in the development and economy of
Delhi and other States, yet they were being insulted in other states. Holding Congress governments fully responsible for this, she said that the Union Home Minister should have paid attention towards these facts as well before issuing any statement.
Ms. Mayawati ji said that everybody knew that the law and order and crime control of Delhi state was under the control of Union Home Ministry. Therefore, it was very unfortunate that the Union Home Minister, in his effort to hide his weaknesses, was holding people from U.P. and Bihar
responsible for the increasing crime in Delhi today. She said that the people of U.P. and Bihar would not pardon him for this unfortunate statement.
