The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday condemned the fresh violence in Muzaffarnagar, saying this is the result of vote-bank politics of the Akhilesh Yadav-led Uttar Pradesh Government. “The situation arising in and around Muzaffarnagar is very worrisome. We appeal that government must immediately take action so as to prevent further flare-up,” said BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar.
“We condemn the incident in Muzaffarnagar, since the Akhilesh Government came in power in UP, there have been over 100 riots. Not a single real culprit has been nabbed,” he added
Four people, including a woman, have been killed in two incidents of violence in Muzaffarnagar in Uttar Pradesh, where communal clashes last month had left over 60 dead and 45,000 homeless. The clashes occurred in the Bhaurankalan police station area, when people from two communities fought a pitched battle in which three youngsters were shot dead.
The administration has imposed Section 144 in the area to avoid any untoward incident.
