"Not An Alliance": Mayawati Explains Arrangement With Samajwadi Party

  "Not An Alliance": Mayawati Explains Arrangement With Samajwadi PartyNew Delhi: Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati today said her party had not formed any electoral alliance with archrival Samajwadi Party (SP) for the upcoming Lok Sabha bypolls in Uttar Pradesh's Gorakhpur and Phulpur, seats vacated by Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and his deputy Keshav Prasad Maurya.

Uttar Pradesh topped the list of incidents of communal violence in 2016, according to a statement submitted by minister of state for home, Kiren Rijiju in Lok Sabha on Tuesday. While 155 incidents of violence were reported in the poll-bound state in 2015

NEW DELHI: Uttar Pradesh topped the list of states with maximum communal violence incidents in the country last year, the Lok Sabha was informed today. Union Minister of State for Home Hansraj Gangaram Ahir said 822 communal incidents took place in the country in 2017

Uttar Pradesh led the nationwide increase in communal violence in 2017, according to statistics placed by the Union Home Ministry in parliament on Wednesday. The figures indicate that incidents of communal violence have gone up to 822 and killed 111 people last year, the highest in four years.

According to the centre's statistics, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Bihar and Jharkhand accounted for the biggest chunk of the 15 per cent increase in communal incidents in 2017 over the previous year.

The spike in violence in these states is a sharp contrast to reports from states such as Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh that appear to have succeeded in keeping the situation under check.

Uttar Pradesh is on the boil again, after a Hindu youth was shot dead following clashes between two communities on Republic Day. It is unclear why the administration has not been able to curb the violence in three days. Communal polarisation kills.

Union Minister of State for Home Hansraj Gangaram Ahir told the Lok Sabha that the communal violence was "reported to be attributed to religious factors, land and property disputes, gender related offences, social media related issues and other miscellaneous factors."

Bypoll results: SP-BSP stun BJP

Uttar Pradesh also continues to top the list of states with maximum communal violence incidents, and deaths. 44 people were killed and 540 injured in UP in 2017. This compares poorly with 29 deaths and injuries to 490 people in 2016, and 22 deaths and 410 injuries the previous year.

The statistics contradict Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath who had a few months back claimed that not a single riot had taken place in the state after he came to power.

He said that sometimes one needs to forget the past. “Hum Samajwadi log sabka samman karte hain... log purani baatein yaad dila rahe they... lekin kabhi kabhi kuch purani baatein bhoolni padti hain... aur hamara, aapka aur Samajwadiyo ka kabhi kisi ke prati vyavhaar kharab nahi raha hoga... yahi karan hai ke aaj hum logo ke sambandh sabse achhe hain... (We Samajwadis respect everyone.

"When we came to power, hooliganism was at its peak and there was not a day when riots did not take place...the governments at the helm used to call over rioters and honour them...but in these eight months not a single riot has taken place," Yogi Adityanath said in November last year during campaigning for the local body elections.

An analysis of Home Ministry statistics tabled in parliament indicates that the only time communal violence figures had been higher over the last seven years was in 2013 when riots broke out in Muzaffarnagar region of Uttar Pradesh that left over 60 dead.
