Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and state unit president of the Samajwadi Party, Akhilesh Yadav on Saturday issued a show cause notice to party MLA Mohammad Rizvi for criticising the state government’s performance in the media.
Akhilesh was put on a defensive after two of his party MLAs and a Cabinet minister scathingly criticised his regime.
On Friday Pramod Gupta, an MLA from Bidhuna, was expelled for his outburst that law and order has worsened in the present regime.
Gupta is also the brother of Akhilesh’s step mother Sadhna Gupta. An agitated Gupta stated in his letter to the chief minister two days back, which was released to the press in Etawah, that he was frustrated to feel the perpetual lawlessness and criminal behaviour of a section of powerful Yadavs in Etawah who have unleashed havoc on the public.
He also said that the criminal activities are on the rise because the government has failed to maintain a proper law and order situation.
However, Gupta himself does not enjoy a good reputation and is alleged to have often pressurized the local officials for his own interests. It was his son Abhinav who had slapped a female teacher of a prestigious professional college six months back.
