Mayawati demands President's rule in UP


New Delhi: Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati Friday met President Pranab Mukherjee and urged him to impose President's rule in Uttar Pradesh in the wake of the communal violence in Muzaffarnagar that has claimed 48 lives.

"We requested the president to impose Article 356 of the constitution in Uttar Pradesh as the law and order situation in the state has gone out of hand," Maywawti told reporters after the meeting.

The meeting focused on the communal violence in the Muzaffarnagar district that left hundreds injured and displaced thousands.

"SP (Samajwadi Party) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) were hand-in-glove in disturbing the peace and communal harmony in the state. I request the people to reject their communal agenda," she said.

She alleged that the Samajwadi Party was playing politics over the riots.

"The Samajwadi Party has failed in controlling the riots, and also in the rehabilitation process," she added.
