Earlier in the day, BSP supremo Mayawati fired salvo on Adityanath and said that he will “divide the state on communal lines” and push RSS agenda in the state. The BSP supremo also said that Adityanath Government will not be able to maintain law and order in Uttar Pradesh. “In Uttar Pradesh, it does not matter if it is the SP or the BJP in power. They cannot control law and order. BJP has appointed a priest as chief minister who will not take forward the agenda of development but will push the RSS agenda. They will divide Uttar Pradesh on communal lines. Now, there will again be an environment of fear in the state,” she told reporters outside Parliament.
