Lucknow/UNI: Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has attacked the Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh over an increasing crime rate in the northern state, saying 'crime rate meter is higher than government's speed'.

The Congress leader reacting to the recent statement of the state CM Yogi Adityanath given in the assembly, said that the Chief Minister shows the speed of the government and the crime meter starts to run at double speed.

Recently, the UP CM had said that the works of the government would get a double speed as the assembly elections are to be held in next just one and a half year.

In her tweet on Tuesday, Priyanka said that in two days the crime rate has doubled which shows the commitment of the UP CM.
