Some blame it on a meeting by the Jat community, demanding the withdrawal of cases against its members for communal clashes in the neighbouring Kawal village on August 27, which left three people dead, while there are other theories that say that the anger has been piling up due to the inefficiency of the government.
Political parties have other reasons to share, especially when the elections are just round the corner. For instance, SP raises fingers at BJP for fuelling a small incident into communal clashes, while the BJP believes that the clashes happened due to the sheer negligence of the government.
Amidst this chaos and disruption, the CM Akhilesh Yadav's approach to the entire situation is quite 'remarkable'. He is banking on the very (IAS) officers whom he had considered unnecessary just a few months back during the Durga Shakti Nagpal case.
That is not all, the clashes have proved to be a pandora's box as more skeletons tumble out. Akhilesh Yadav had claimed high for his state saying that there is communal harmony and peace and that the IAS was trying to disrupt it. Subsequently, she was suspended and the rest is history.
Our question to you Akhileshji (hoping that you know by now what communal riots actually are)-going by your trend of suspending anyone causing communal tension, who do we suspend now? the state government? Very likely, especially when their is a huge uproar that the state should have President's rule.
You say that the decision now lies on the local administration and the officials here to control the situation. But weren't you confident that your state can function without IAS officers (remember Durga Shakti)? Let's forget that, we hear that your father Mulayam Singh Yadav is calling the shots for you? Even that is not surprising for us since there is a saying in Hindi:
'Jo garajte hain whoh baraste nahin (the clouds that thunder most do not cause rain)"
No wonder, the center did not take your claims regarding IAS officials seriously.
