Mayawati’s statement came in response to the reported meeting between the top SP leadership and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad on Saturday.

VHP leaders claimed to have requested SP chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and his son, Akhilesh Yadav, chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, to mediate with the Muslim community and find ways for construction of the Ram temple in Ayodhya.

“This is a drama. I appeal to the people not to be misled by BJP and SP. Both the parties are in a weak position in the state and hence have forged alliances before the elections to flare up communal tension,” she said.
