Sonia blames BJP government for spurt in communal riots in UP, other states

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Tuesday blamed the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government at Centre for the recent spurt in the incidents of communal cases in Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.

Addressing a meeting of the office-bearers of the Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee, Gandhi alleged that “all these incidents were being deliberately created to divide society on religious line.”

According to the Congress president, communal incidents had increased after the BJP government came into power. She further hit out at the NDA government over India’s stand on the Gaza issue. “The BJP government has betrayed India’s long tradition of solidarity with the people of Palestine.” she said.

This comes days after Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi told The Indian Express that the communal riots in Uttar Pradesh were engineered, calling it part of a deliberate strategy to “divide the poor”.
