SP, BJP behind Muzaffarnagar violence: Tiwari

Mathura, Sep 9, 2013 (PTI)

Congress leader Pramod Tiwari has accused the ruling Samajwadi Party and BJP of fanning communal tensions in Muzaffarnagar that has left 28 persons dead.

"Both the parties are deliberately trying to fan communal tensions to reap political benefits out of it," Tiwari charged.

He criticised the SP government for allegedly failing to maintain law and order in the state and claimed that UP had seen a spurt in incidents of violence since non-Congress governments were formed.

"UP has seen a spurt in violence since the time a non-Congress government was formed in UP," Tiwari told reporters yesterday.


He accused SP and BJP of instigating people which led to the violence.

Tiwari said the VHP-sponsored '84 Kosi parikrama' and the state government's ban on it was a gimmick by BJP and SP for votebank politics.

"Everybody knew the traditional yatra got over within the stipulated time. To revive it was cheating in itself," he said.

Terming the passage of the Food Security Bill and the Land Acquisition Bill an achievement of his party, Tiwari asserted that Congress would win in the coming Lok Sabha polls under the leadership of party Vice-President Rahul Gandhi.
