Lucknow: Pursuing its policy of zero tolerance for crime, the Yogi Adityanath government seems to have come a long way in not only effectively maintaining law and order but also instilled a sense of security among the common man, claims a government communique.
Citing data by National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), a government official said the BJP Government’s crackdown against mafias and criminals has changed the perception about Uttar Pradesh.
“Despite being the most populous state, UP under the effective leadership of Yogi Adityanath has witnessed a sharp decline in the crime rate.
Needless to say, it has also in the process efficiently restored harmony and peace in the state by controlling large-scale communal clashes,” he said.
According to NCRB, there has been a significant decrease in dacoity, rape,
extortion-kidnapping, loot and clashes in Uttar Pradesh. No riots occurred in the state in the year 2018, whereas places like Maharashtra recorded 94 cases of communal violence.
With powerful initiatives like ‘Mission Shakti’, CM Yogi also succeeded in achieving his aim of ensuring the safety, dignity and empowerment of women in Uttar Pradesh with a stern warning that perpetrators of crimes against females will be dealt with an iron hand Under the powerful safety mechanism of girls and women in UP, a total of 25895 criminals have been sent behind bars till the year 2019.
It is to be mentioned, that in the data released by NCRB after the Ministry of Home Affairs was questioned in the Rajya Sabha, UP recorded no cases of communal riots in the span of the last three years.
However, large-scale communal clashes took place in Uttar Pradesh in the year 2016 before Yogi Adityanath took charge.
