BJP on Friday cited a purported sting operation to fire a fresh salvo at the Samajwadi Party government in Uttar Pradesh, alleging it has “exposed” the ruling party’s collusion with Mathura’s Jawahar Bag encroachers.
The party also asked the state government to immediately recommend for a CBI inquiry so that truth could come out. “The sting has exposed Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and his government. He had blamed officers for the violence. Now it has emerged that over 80 intelligence inputs were sent to the government but it did not act because it was in collusion with land mafia,” BJP national secretary Shrikant Sharma claimed.
The sting operation purportedly showed intelligence officials saying they had informed the Uttar Pradesh government about threats posed by the well-armed encroachers, who were also part of a sect. The government has been making efforts to cover up its crime but BJP will continue with its agitation till all those involved are exposed, he alleged.
Sharma said Yadav should apologise to officials for blaming them for the killing of cops and demanded that the chief minister should not take action against the officials shown in the sting video.
