VHP's controversial Ayodhya yatra rocked Parliament today with both Houses being disrupted repeatedly due to clashes between Samajwadi Party and BJP as demands were made for dismissal of the Uttar Pradesh government.
Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh launched a scathing attack on BJP, saying it was resorting to hooliganism by disregarding the Constitution and court orders. Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha witnessed three adjournments each on the issue in the pre-lunch session.
Raising the issue in the Lok Sabha, Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav alleged that BJP is resorting to hooliganism and had attacked the party's office in Delhi following crackdown by the UP government on VHP's yatra. "We know how to stop hooliganism. We have stopped it in the past," he said, accusing BJP of engineering riots.
Charging BJP with violating court orders and disregarding the Constitution, Yadav said they are resorting to anti-national activities. "Since they have no support left they are looking for excuses. There is no vote bank left with them so they want riots. They should stop vote bank politics. People are not supporting them. Saints have also condemned them," he said.
This as strongly countered by BJP's Yogi Adityanath who insisted that the Lucknow Bench of the Allahabad High Court has declared the disputed place as the birthplace of Lord Ram and the saints have been demanding a law for the purpose.
Adityanath accused the SP government of "humiliating the saints and insulting the Hindus" and demanded it should be immediately dismissed. He claimed that SP rule has seen as many as 30 riots, in which the Hindus have suffered. He said the UP government was allotting land in the name of cemeteries.
