Taking to Twitter, she also praised the UP Law Commission’s initiative on steps to check mob lynching.
“After the Supreme Court’s directive, the Central Government should have by now made a strong national law against mob lynching. But same as Lokpal, the Centre seems disinterested and is proving to be a government with low will power. In such case the initiative of UP law commission is a welcome move”, Mayawati wrote.

Because of this now not only Dalits, Tribals and religious minorities but also people of society and even police are becoming a victim of the same”, Mayawati alleged.
The UP law commission has recommended that accused in mob lynching incidents be handed life imprisonment if the victimloses llife.
