Aligarh riots: BJP seeks dismissal of Mulayam govt
Kanpur, Apr 10: The Bharatiya Janata Party today demanded dismissal of the Mulayam Singh-led government in Uttar Pradesh over the deteriorating law and order situation in the state.
Interacting with mediapersons here today, BJP national general secretary and Rajya Sabha MP Vinay Katiyar alleged terrorists with the 'blessings' of state government were targetting one city after another and Aligarh incident is one such in the chain of activities.
''Either this government has failed to check such activities or it was supporting anti-national activities to enrich its vote bank in the state,'' he said.
He cautioned the Centre that if this government remained in power any further, entire state would be under the grip of terrorist activities.
Criticising the Uttar Pradesh government as well as the Centre for the communal disturbances and subsequent curfew in Aligarh city, Mr Katiyar said while senior BJP leaders including Kalyan Singh and Lalji Tandon were detained and sent back to Lucknow, the central ministers were allowed to visit the trouble-torn city.
The BJP leaders wantedto express their heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family of party MLA Devakinandan Kori, whose son Triloki was murdered during the clash, he said.
Mr Katiyar also sat on an hour-long dharna in the Shikshak Park over the Aligarh riots.
