Lucknow: On one hand, the opposition is attacking the Yogi government regarding the law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh. On the other hand, the data of National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) has given a big relief to the government. NCRB has released the crime figures for 2021, according to which 378 cases of communal violence were registered across the country, of which Uttar Pradesh registered only one case. This is being seen as a big achievement of the Yogi government.
While 100 cases were registered in Maharashtra, 77 in Jharkhand, 51 in Bihar and 40 in Haryana. Rajasthan ranks fifth in terms of communal violence. According to the NCRB data, not a single case was registered in 2019 and 2020.
