NEW DELHI: “Anti-national elements can’t tolerate ‘tiranga yatra’,” union Minister Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti today said on the violence in Kasganj.
“UP govt is taking strict actions. Such incidents will not be tolerated. It should also not be politicised,” the minister was quoted by ANI.
The minister’s remark came a day after Bareilly district magistrate Raghvendra Vikram Singh, via his Facebook account, had questioned why it has become a “trend” for some to first “enter Muslim localities by force, raise anti-Pakistan slogans and then create a ruckus”.
Last week, violence broke out between two communities in Uttar Pradesh’s Kasganj over a flag rally. According to sources, some members of the rally allegedly raised slogans targeting a community, after which stones were pelted and shots were fired on the bikers. The clashes resulted in the death of a youth.
