Samajwadi Party, BJP have tacit understanding: BSP

Opposition BSP on Tuesday blamed the state government for not collecting the forensic report in the Dadri lynching case.

Lucknow: Charging ruling Samajwadi Party with being hand in glove with BJP in spoiling communal amity in Uttar Pradesh, Opposition BSP on Tuesday blamed the state government for not collecting the forensic report in the Dadri lynching case as it will "expose" these parties.

"The state police is not collecting the forensic report on the Dadri lynching to ascertain whether it was beef or mutton as it will further expose these parties," senior BSP leader and Leader of the Opposition in the state Assembly Swami Prasad Maurya said here.

"BSP has always stated that these parties are together out to damage communal brotherhood...before 2014 Lok Sabha elections there were riots and it will be seen again with the 2017 UP assembly polls approaching," he said.

"Perhaps, it is because of this that the government is not collecting the forensic report," he said as to why the police was not collecting the report on the meat samples recovered from the house of Mohammed Ikhlaq, who was lynched in Bisara village on September 28 following rumours of cow slaughter.

The report is said to be gathering dust at a government laboratory in Mathura.

To a question on the arrival of "shilas" (stone slabs) in Ayodhya, he branded as "desi atankwadi" (homegrown terrorists) those initiating the process of bringing stones despite the issue pending before the Supreme Court.

"The SP government which kept sleeping as trucks bringing stones arrived in Ayodhya is reponsible for again proves the tacit understanding between SP and BJP," he said, adding had the SP government respected the apex court there was no scope of even a brick reaching there.
