New Delhi, May 20: Congress on Thursday, May 19 ridiculed Uttar Pradesh government for dismissing as baseless Rahul Gandhi's allegations about burning of people and rape of women in Bhatta Parsaul, saying it was the new BSP format of governance where the accused gave themselves a clean chit.

"This is the new format of BSP style of governance.

The accused does the investigation and proves himself innocent. This is a strange way of conducting an inquiry where the accused give themselves a clean chit," senior party leader Digvijay Singh said.

His remarks came hours after the UP government said that preliminary forensic reports of ashes collected from the area have ruled out presence of any human remains.

Addressing a press conference on behalf of chief minister Mayawati in Lucknow, the state''s Cabinet Secretary Shashank Shekar Singh also suggested restraint in airing views which later require clarifications.

Reacting to it, Singh, who is the AICC general secretary in-charge for Uttar Pradesh said,"What is the credibility of UP government and Shashank Shekhar. If all is well then why the state government does not accept a judicial inquiry?" Another senior party leader speaking on the condition of anonymity also found fault with the UP Cabinet Secretary ''attacking'' the opposition. "How appropriate it is for a government officer to be making political statements," the leader wondered.
