New Delhi, Sep 29 (TIWN) The opposition Congress alleged that law and order had collapsed in Uttar Pradesh as the Yogi Adityanath government had "failed to protect women" in the state. The statement came after a Dalit gang rape victim from Hathras passed away in a Delhi hospital on Tuesday.

Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi alleged that “Law and order had collapsed in the state and there was no protection to women, even as criminals are roaming freely in Uttar Pradesh.”

She said Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was answerable for the safety of women in the state.

Congress Spokesperson Supriya Shrinate said: “Yogi Adityanath government kept sitting for eight days. Why was no action taken against the culprits all these days? It was only when the case was highlighted that the administration woke up.”

She said that civil and police officials were in denial mode over the crime and even dubbed it “fake news”.
