Bangalore (Karnataka) [India], Dec. 12 (ANI): Backing Prime Minister Narendra Modi's 'gunda raj' remarks made during the latest Parivartan rally in Uttar Pradesh, Bharatiya Janata Party leader S. Prakash said on Monday that multiple power centers within the Samajwadi Party have left the northern state in a complete state of lawlessness.
"In UP, with too many power centers in the party, law and order has gone for a toss. Large scale violence, communal violence, kidnappings and extortion have been on the rise. In this background, the Prime Minister rightly said that the BJP would establish a 'legal raaj' and law and order will be given priority," S. Prakash told ANI.
Prime Minister Modi on Sunday told a rally in Uttar Pradesh's Bahraich district that 'gunda raj' will end in the state if his party is voted to power.
"If you have to take your state forward, you will have to throw out those backing these gundas. And the Bharatiya Janata Party will do that," Modi said, targeting the ruling Samajwadi Party.
He said he could not understand the discomfort of the ruling Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) at the central government's fight against black money. (ANI)
