Monday June 16, 2014 11:38 PM, IANS

Amid a spate of cases of violence against women and political leaders in Uttar Pradesh, union Home Minister Rajnath Singh Monday said the central government was concerned over the situation in the state.

"The MHA (ministry of home affairs) is concerned over the prevailing 'law and order' situation in Uttar Pradesh," Rajnath Singh wrote on Twitter.

"We are closely monitoring the situation in UP," he added.

Three Bharatiya Janata Party leaders have been killed in the state in the past two weeks.

A series of crimes against women have also been reported, including the recent case from Badaun where two teenaged girls were raped and then hanged from a tree.

Two more cases of teenaged girls being hanged from trees were also reported from other parts of the state.

BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi slammed the Samajwadi Party government in Uttar Pradesh for the violence.

He said if the state government cannot improve law and order in the state, it should resign.

"The situation is not normal. There is maximum lawlessness and goonism in the most populous state of the country," Naqvi said.

Congress leader Rashid Alvi also expressed concern over the law and order situation.

The Bahujan Samaj Party has already demanded imposition of President's rule in the state.
