The Uttar Pradesh police on Friday (6 December) reminded Mayawati the action it has taken against criminals in the state after she accused them of inaction.
While speaking to ANI, BSP supremo Mayawati demanded that the UP Police learns from their Hyderabad counterparts and take action against those involved in crimes against women. She further alleged that in current day UP, criminals are being treated as state guests.
The UP Police though decided not to sit back and promptly responded to her statement on Twitter.
The UP Police reminded Mayawati that the state cops have killed 103 criminals and injured 1,859 in over 5,100 police encounters in the last two years. As a result of police action, almost 18,000 criminals opted to cancel their bail and go to jail.
Incidentally, Mayawati who is now encouraging police encounter, has a couple of years ago opposed them by questioning whether the criminals belong to any particular class or community.
