Shivpal Yadav pulls up Mayawati for moving resolution to split UP
Lucknow, Nov. 22 (ANI): A day after the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister moved the resolution to divide the state into four smaller parts, Leader of Opposition, Shivpal Yadav, terming Mayawati to be crazy today said that no person in right state of mind would even consider dividing the state.
"I feel that the Chief Minister (Mayawati) has lost her mind. She must be crazy to spoil such a beautiful bouquet of flowers that is our state. And I believe a person who is crazy and mentally unstable will come up with such a division plan," Yadav told mediapersons here.
Commenting on his meeting with Uttar Pradesh Governor B.L Joshi, Yadav said: "The events of yesterday (Monday, November 21) were completely undemocratic. We tried to bring the no confidence motion in the assembly. This government had lost its majority that matter should have been discussed first and voting should have been conducted. When the government was not in majority then this resolution should never have been passed."
"Right now, the constitution is under threat in Uttar Pradesh. That's why we met the governor yesterday and we urged him to intervene and recall the assembly session," he added.
Yadav had earlier on Monday met Governor Joshi and demanded the immediate dismissal of the Mayawati Government for not moving the "No Confidence Motion" in the state assembly.
Meanwhile, former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and founder of the regional Jan Kranti Party, Kalyan Singh, supporting the division of the state said that he was always in favour of smaller states.
"The state government introduced the resolution to divide the state of Uttar Pradesh into four parts in the assembly and it was passed with majority. I support that resolution and the division of Uttar Pradesh," he said.
Kalyan Singh further criticised Mayawati-led Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) Government for not providing sufficient time for all parties to discuss the issue that led to an uproar in the state assembly.
"Now, the topic of discussion is that such an important resolution was passed without any debate. I agree that there should have been a debate on this issue, but the assembly is a place to have discussions and not for an uproar, like the one that occurred yesterday (Monday, November 21)," he added.
Amid strong protests from the entire opposition, the resolution for the division of the Uttar Pradesh in four new states was passed by a voice vote in the state assembly on Monday.
Mayawati presented the resolution saying that it was being forwarded to the Centre.
The assembly was later adjourned sine die after the passage of the resolution.
As soon as both the houses met for the day members from the opposition parties protested alleging misrule of the government. Samajwadi Party members demanded the dismissal of the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) Government alleging that it is in minority and a corrupt government.
Mayawati had earlier this month announced that Uttar Pradesh would be reorganised into four smaller states - Bundelkhand, Awadh Pradesh, Poorvanchal and Paschim Pradesh.
Poorvanchal comprises of 22 eastern districts of the state, including Gorakhpur and Balia. The current capital Lucknow would fall in Awadh Pradesh, which comprises of 14 districts.
Bundelkhand has seven districts, including Jhansi, while Paschim Pradesh would have 22 districts, comprising Meerut, Ghaziabad and Gutam Buddh Nagar among others. (ANI)
