Firozabad: Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav on Wednesday accused the Uttar Pradesh government of misusing police for implicating people in false cases and killing them in staged gun fights.

The SP chief made the allegation while addressing a public meeting here on the occasion of the inauguration of a building of the local AK College. He also accused the government of removing Value Added Tax (VAT) from diesel and petrol before the elections to get votes, but reimposing the same after the elections.

“Today, there is a big fight. The injustice has broken all boundaries. Innocent people are getting killed in encounters. The police is framing people in false cases,” said Yadav. “We had dreamt of making Uttar Pradesh an Uttam Pradesh, but the BJP has turned it into a hatya pradesh,” he added. He said the BJP was trying to strip people of their constitutional rights.

“Everything is being privatised and the jobs are being outsourced. The BJP people are very sharp-minded. They are ahead (of others) in misleading people,” said Yadav. “To get votes during elections, they had removed VAT from diesel and petrol, but after elections were over, the VAT was imposed again,” he said and added that the BJP government has virtually destroyed the country.

“The government decisions indicate the country is in a grip of recession. The companies are getting closed, and job losses are being reported from every sector. Most of the sectors, be it textile or automobile, are going downward,” Yadav said.

Earlier in July, taking cognisance of incidents of mob lynching, including those by cow vigilantes, the Uttar Pradesh Law Commission had submitted a draft Bill recommending up to life imprisonment for the crime.

Commission Chairman Justice (retd) AN Mittal had submitted a report on mob lynching, along with the draft Bill, to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday.

The 128-page report cited various cases of lynching in the state and recommended the immediate enactment of law as per recommendations made by the Supreme Court in 2018.

The commission said the existing laws to combat incidents of lynching were not sufficient and asserted that there should be a separate law to tackle them. It suggested a punishment ranging from seven years in jail to life imprisonment for the offence.
