Moradabad, July 26: Congress leader Naseeb Singh today, criticized Uttar Pradesh government for not allowing a peace march.
“UP government is not even allowing a peace march, this is dictatorial,” said Singh.
Earlier today, the local police had detained Congress leaders and workers on their way to Moradabad.
At the epicenter of the trouble in Moradabad is a temple in Muslim dominated Akbarpur village belonging to the Jatav community. Trouble started last month after a section of villagers protested against installation of a loudspeaker in the temple.
The VHP has reportedly demanded re-installation of loudspeakers and wants to hold to perform puja at the temple. (ANI)
