Muzaffarnagar, Dec.29,: Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad Yadav on Sunday visited the Muzaffarnagar riot victims camps and said the communal forces are trying to divide the country on religious lines and have targetted the Uttar Pradesh.
Lalu who is on a surprise visit to the relief camps, said, “I got news about the riots in Muzaffarnagar through T.V. The whole country’s attention was on Muzaffarnagar. We all, secular people, are making an effort to stop the communal forces from dividing this country on religious lines.
Apparently referring to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, Lalu said, “The man, who belongs to Hindi speaking state and possesses a desire to sit on the crown of Hastinapur, has targetted the Uttar Pradesh, India’s largest state, where the government is an also secular one.”
“Narendra Modi, BJP and Sangh Parivar are all dividing this country. Modi’s general manager Amit Shah was here and instigated these riots. These people are trying to communalise the whole country and the society,” he added.
“Earlier all the people from Muslim and Hindu communities used to work here in peace. Then these riots took place. I am not blaming anyone but I think there was lack of response from the government. They should help the people who have suffered in these riots,” he said.
“In our Parivartan Rally in Bihar, we told people clearly that the people of this country have to decide, whether they want the country to be united or to be divided after the 2014 general elections,” he added. (ANI)
