Prayagraj. November 27: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati on Thursday slammed the Uttar Pradesh government over the law and order situation following the murder of a labourer and his family in Prayagraj.

"Murder of four members of a Dalit family by miscreants in Prayagraj is very sad shameful. This incident also shows the poor handling of law and order by this government. It seems that the BJP is also following in the footsteps of the SP government in this regard," Mayawati tweeted in Hindi.
