Pointing out to the current status of law and order in the state, he said:

"The Governor used to intervene on law and order earlier during the SP regime. It was said that there were only Yadav officers. Now there is hardly any Yadav SP or DM.

Yadav also stated that no Yadav has a top post. He said that state government should therefore act:

"Earlier, BJP use to say people of Yadav community are at top posts but I don't think any Yadav community people are at the top post and despite of the fact law and order situation has been deteriorated in state and government need to act."

On 12th June, the Uttar Pradesh Bar Council President Darvesh Yadav was allegedly shot dead on Agra court premises on Wednesday by a lawyer who then tried to kill himself.
