PM raises security, unemployment issues during UP poll campaign

Keeping in tune with the Congress's agenda on development, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Tuesday slammed the Uttar Pradesh Government for poor law and order situation in the State.

Gorakhpur, May 1 : Keeping in tune with the Congress's agenda on development, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Tuesday slammed the Uttar Pradesh Government for poor law and order situation in the State.

"If you look at the law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh, the crime rate is going high. Goons and mafia are roaming around freely. Because of fear, Dalits, women and children are unable to roam around freely and injustice is taking place against them. Today, common people in the State are not feeling safe," Singh said at an election rally in Gorakhpur.

Lamenting the state's poor industrial record, Singh said there was nothing called as industrial development in UP.

"There is nothing called as industrial development over here. And on top of it all, old factories have closed down. The direct effect of this is seen on the youth, who are unable to get employment opportunities. Everyone wants employment and for that we require new factories and an environment to have new factories," he said on the last day of campaigning for the sixth phase of polling.

Uttar Pradesh is in the midst of a record seven-phase poll spread over April and May. The sixth phase of polling is slated for Thursday, while the final phase will take place on May 8. Counting will take place on May 11 with the results expected the same day.
