Bulandshahr violence a political conspiracy, says CM Yogi Adityanath

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday said that the Bulandshahr violence was a “political conspiracy” hatched by those who have lost political ground. 

“Those who wanted to create anarchy, the intentions of those who instigated riots after cow slaughter have been foiled,” Adityanath told reporters.

“The December 3 (Bulandshahr) violence is a political conspiracy hatched by those who have lost political ground,” he told reporters after the Assembly was adjourned for the day amid opposition ruckus.

The day’s proceedings in both the Houses of the state legislature was adjourned amid uproar and sloganeering by the opposition Samajwadi Party (SP)  and the Congress over various issues, including the plight of farmers and the law-and-order situation in the state.

The chief minister had earlier termed the Bulandshahr incidents an accident.

The Bulandshahr violence, which occurred over an incident of alleged cow slaughter, claimed two lives including a police inspector.
