No riots during BSP rule as they were hand-in-glove with BJP: Azam

Swami Prasad Maurya

"We do not have the tradition of blaming persons who are not members of this House and those who have died," Hukum Singh, BJP MLA from Kairana seat, said. But the BSP members backed G M Singh. Maurya too decried the state government for its move to revoke cases against the terror accused. "It is being done for cheap popularity and vote bank. The state government has failed to control the law and order situation. During our four governments, no incidents of communal riots occurred. We dealt sternly with such incidents and booked the guilty. The present government lacks both the will and courage to act against such elements," Maurya alleged.

House passes Rs 5,861 cr supplementary budget

The house passed supplementary budgetary proposals to the tune of Rs 5861.29 crore by a voice vote after the BSP staged a walkout. Leader of Opposition Swami Prasad Maurya alleged that the government had brought a supplementary budget when the money allocated in the annual budget had not even been released. BJP's Hukum Singh said the supplementary proposals were meant to benefit only Saifai, Kannauj and other nearby areas.
