Lucknow: Coming down hard on the Akhilesh Yadav government for the Badaun gangrape case, BSP supremo Mayawati today said transferring and suspending officers will not help and the SP government needs to tighten the noose around its own partymen.

Reiterating her demand for imposition of President's rule in the state, she said, “If the state government is unable to control the situation then in the interest of the people it should relinquish power.

Otherwise we again request the Governor to recommend President rule,” she said.  

Mayawati said that Centre should also take an initiative in this direction, otherwise the people of the state would not forgive BJP along with the SP.

The BSP chief was talking to reporters before leaving for Badaun to meet the family members of two cousin Dalit girls, who were gangraped and later hanged. 

“Only transferring and suspending officers will not improve the situation.

They have to tighten the noose around their own party people,” she said.
