UP ministers being autocratic, says BJP

Lucknow, Oct 29 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Wednesday accused the Samajwadi Party (SP) government ministers of behaving in an autocratic manner.

Reacting to the statement of Health Minister Ahmad Hasan that all doctors owing allegiance to the Indian Medical Association (IMA) were ‘dalaal’ (brokers), state BJP spokesman Vijay Bahadur Pathak said the minister should also explain whose deals were the doctors brokering?

Pathak alleged that ministers of the Akhilesh Yadav government were behaving as dictators.

Responding to the health minister’s allegation that people with vested interests were spreading rumours about dengue, Pathak said the minister must learn to patiently hear the problems of the people instead of making wild statements.

The BJP spokesman also pointed out how another minister, Mehboob Ali, had suspended an official because of the gold rings he was wearing on his fingers.

“This is not only absurd but also suggestive of the larger malaise in the government, that of brazenness and unchecked arrogance,” Pathak told IANS.

He also said that Urban Development Minister Mohd. Azam Khan’s recent statement calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi a “murderer” was another example that the ministers in the state government were crossing all limits of political decorum.
