Lucknow, June 13 : Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) president Mayawati on Monday accused the BJP government in Uttar Pradesh of creating an atmosphere of fear amongst the minorities and has urged the judiciary to take congizance on such illegal acts.
Mayawati’s reaction comes in the wake of UP government’s action in Prayagraj and other places against those allegedly involved in arson and rioting during the protest against BJP leaders comments about Prophet Mohammad.
In a series of tweets on Monday morning, Mayawati wrote, “By targeting a particular community by bulldozing their homes and other malicious aggressive actions, the state government was suppressing the citizen’s right to protest and creating an atmosphere of fear and terror, which is unfair and unjust. The courts must take cognizance of the faulty action of targeting the entire family by demolishing their houses”.
She further said, “While the root cause of the problem is Nupur Sharma and Naveen Jindal, due to which the honor of the country has been adversely affected leading to widespread violence. Then why not action was taken against them and why the government ridiculed the rule of law? The government not sending both the accused to jail is grossly biased and unfortunate. “She further demanded immediate arrest of both the BJP leaders. The BSP president alleged that the bulldozing and other subversive actions being carried out by the government in a hurry, while ignoring the rules and regulations, is resulting in innocents being targeted unfairly. In this sequence, demolishing the house of PM Awas Yojana was also discussed. Why such excess?,” she questioned.
