judicial verdict on the Ayodhya title suit and slammed the UPA
government at the Centre for remaining a "mute spectator" to
"Intentions of BJP, VHP and RSS seem doubtful. They have
already started whipping up emotions linking the issue with
the belief of crores of Hindus," UP SP chief Akhilesh Yadav
told reporters here.
"Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati is also creating
an unnecessary hype over the issue as if some major crisis is
in the offing," he said.
"The state has demanded 653 companies of para-military
forces, there is a ban on processions and flag marches are
being staged by security forces.
"This has created tension among common people who are
busy stocking food and other items apprehending trouble," the
SP leader said.
Schools and colleges were also being converted into
temporary jails, he said.
Slamming the Congress-led UPA government at the
Centre, he said it had remained a mute spectator to all this.
The SP leader alleged the Union government was taking
a stand similar to the one adopted by the then Congress regime
in 1992 when the Babri mosque was demolished.
Referring to ties between BSP and BJP, Yadav said
Mayawati took the help of the safforn party in the past for
Secular values were not safe under her dispensation,
Yadav appealed to party MPs and MLAs and the people to
exercise restraint and maintain peace.
