SP fanning communal tension: Babbar

india Updated: Jul 18, 2006 01:40 IST

SUSPENDED SAMAJWADI Party MP and convener of the Jan Morcha Alliance Raj Babbar today accused the Samajwadi Party of trying to fan communal tension in the state as well as the country for political gains. The JMA leader said the Samajwadi Party had been working in alliance with the BJP in this direction.

In the recent blasts in Mumbai, an Samajwadi Party man had been making efforts to create a communal divide to provide a foothold to the party in the metropolis, Babbar said.

Condemning the Students Islamic Movement of India (SIMI), the Vishwa Hindu Parishad and the Bajrang Dal for spreading communal venom, he asked the people to be alert as the Samajwadi Party had been striving for communal discord.

Addressing newsmen here on Monday, Babbar also blasted Urban Development Minister Mohd Azam Khan for his demand for a “Muslim Pradesh” in western UP.
He said there was serious threat to the lives of those judges who did not agree with the Samajwadi Party in the State.

Babbar appealed to the Supreme Court to allow the release of the controversial compact discs so that the Samajwadi Party could be exposed. He said the
compact discs  should be made public under the Right to Information Act.

Pointing out that he had alerted the people before communal riots in Lucknow, he said these compact discs  would tell the truth about the ruling party in the state.

Babbar alleged that there had been several political murders in the recent past as the mafia had been ruling the roost in the state.

About the JMA’s common minimum programme, Babbar said the thrust was on farmers, weavers, Muslims, youths and education. The JMA partners met here under the leadership of former Prime Minister VP Singh to finalize the programme.

Babbar said the morcha would make efforts to reach out to the poor and downtrodden in the state whose condition had gone from bad to worse during the last three years.
