New Delhi: Expressing serious concern over the mob lynching incident, the Janata Dal (United) on Monday asked the Samajwadi Party Government in Uttar Pradesh to stop Dadri from becoming Muzaffarnagar.
“I would like to tell the Uttar Pradesh Government to stop Dadri from becoming Muzaffarnagar, otherwise Dadri will have the same situation like Muzaffarnagar,” JD (U) leader K.C. Tyagi told ANI.
“There has been an increase in the number of communal events before the Bihar elections,” he added.
Two main accused in the Dadri lynching case, Shivam and Vishal, were arrested on Saturday, raising the total number of accused in the case to eight.
Several prominent political leaders from Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal have visited Dadri in the last two days to meet the victim’s family.
It may be recalled here that at least 60 persons had lost their lives in the riots, which took place in Muzaffarnagar and its neighbouring districts in September 2013. (ANI)
