BSP Supremo Mayawati blames UP Govt for Bulandshahr violence
Lucknow: Bahujan Samaj Party chief Mayawati blamed Uttar Pradesh government for the violence that erupted in Bulandshahr which claimed two lives including one of the Police inspector.
The BSP Supremo said, “The lawlessness in the state was a result of its faulty and wrong policies.
In a statement, the four-time Chief Minister said that the government was now faced with the same mobocracy it inculcated to make political gains over the past many years.
She further stated that Bulandshahr mob violence reflected that the state government had lost grip on right wing Hindu cadres which earlier targeted only Dalits, backward castes and Muslims.
Mayawati added, “Announcing financial assistance to the victims’ families was not enough and sought assurance from the Adityanath government that such incidents won’t be repeated in the future.”
It is to be mentioned that Police Inspector Subodh Singh and one other were killed while many others were critically injured in Bulandshahr district in Uttar Pradesh on Monday after violence broke out in the aftermath of an alleged case of cow slaughter.
According to information here, members of several Hindu groups with an alleged cow carcass gathered on the Bulandshahr-Syana road and pelted stones at the police personnel.
The Hindu Yuva Vahini and Bajrang Dal activists also vandalized vehicles and attacked police officials. They torched several passing vehicles.
