    Uttar Pradesh deputy chief minister Keshav Prasad Maurya on Friday said that after March 10 people of state will bid a farewell to Samajwadi Party alliance, Congress, and the Bahujan Samaj Party. He said before 2017 the state was reeling under lawlessness, “goondaism”, “mafiasm”, riots and incidents of kidnapping. He said people of the state were forced to leave UP due to “goondaism” of Samajwadi Party. Maurya was in the city to campaign for BJP candidates from Bah, Fatehabad, and Fatehpur Sikri seats. "As the Bharatiya Janata Party government came to power, nobody had to leave UP. Only those malcontents are leaving UP, who used to torture innocent people,” he said. "In 2022, SP chief is dreaming of winning 403 seats, but they would also lose 47 seats they had won in the 2017 assembly election of UP," he said. He claimed that no goons can afford to commit “land grab” any more or cause riots. "Now the reign of goondas, mafias has ended from Uttar Pradesh," Maurya said.
