New Delhi, June 6: The Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) on Monday accused the tiol Democratic Alliance (NDA) government at the Centre of antics and lip-service on Mathura violence, and alleged the BJP and Samajwadi Party are working “hand in glove”. “Dono partiya aapas mein mili hue haen (These two parties are hand in glove with each other),” Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati said in a statement here, adding such nexus has only added to the miseries of the people of Uttar Pradesh.

The former Uttar Pradesh chief minister also said the government of Prime Minister rendra Modi had acted differently on West Bengal violence but with regard to the violence in Uttar Pradesh it is showing iction. “With regard to West Bengal (violence), the central government had taken several initiatives and tried for a CBI probe. But they are only indulging in rhetoric and drama in Uttar Pradesh,” she said. The BSP supremo reminded the BJP-led central government that besides the party winning as many as 71 out of 80 Lok Sabha seats from Uttar Pradesh, Prime Minister rendra Modi also is an elected member from the state. “So, it becomes all the more important that the Centre shows more accountability towards the affairs in the state,” she said. Referring to Mathura violence, Mayawati flayed Governor Ram ik for his perceived “silence”. She alleged the Mathura violence was sparked off due to the state administration’s tacit support to the “land grabbers”. “However, the idequate action of the central government suggests that the intelligence reports on the emerging situation in Mathura should have been passed on to the state government.
