Kanpur Dehat Asim Arun, Minister of Independent Charge in the Social Welfare Department of Uttar Pradesh has said that crime cannot be completely eradicated in the state. Arun said this while speaking at a program in Kanpur countryside. On SP chief Akhilesh Yadav’s statements about inflation and rising crime in Uttar Pradesh, Arun said that crime cannot be completely eradicated in the state. “Yes, the guilty can be punished by taking action”.

Yadav said on Saturday that Uttar Pradesh was “drown in crime” after five members of a family, including three children, were found dead at their home in Uttar Pradesh’s Prayagraj district. Arun said the Yogi Adityanath government was “determined for equality of opportunity”. “The Bharatiya Janata Party government under the leadership of Yogi ji is following the vision of Modi ji and we are committed to equality of opportunity,” Arun said.

He said that a lot of good work was done in the last five years, the result of which was seen in the assembly elections. “We will take it to greater heights in the coming five years,” he said. The social welfare department, Arun said, is “discharging its duty responsibly.” Arun said that “soon bulldozers will start running in Kannauj too”. “In the Yogi 2.0 government, the bulldozers against those who have illegally occupied government land will continue,” Arun said for the Yogi government’s pet move to demolish the homes of alleged criminals. He expressed his gratitude to Pratibha Shukla and Anil Shukla Warsi for inviting her to the programme.
