Dismiss the SP Government in UP

Yesterday's Saharanpur riots were just another brick in the massive communal wall built by the Akhilesh Yadav-run SP Government in UP that has worked tirelessly to fan communal tensions and polarize the population across much of the state but particularly the prosperous Western wing. The law and order machinery envisioned by the Constitution has completely broken down in the state, with the police force more politicized than ever before and rioters freely able to commit murder and arson as long as they belong to the politically-favored community.
 Since the day Akhilesh Yadav was sworn in, UP has seen hundreds of communal riots, with the state not just standing back and watching but actively supporting it. The so-called secular parties that were entirely discredited in the Lok Sabha elections have repeatedly turned a blind-eye to this blatant communalism.

It is clear that nothing better can come of the SP. The people of UP are in danger, their constitutional right to life cannot be protected by the State Government, which simply does not care. Therefore, it is necessary for the Narendra Modi Government to invoke Art. 356 of the Constitution and immediately dismiss the SP Government in UP.
