Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Mulayam Singh Yadav is trying to make every incident a Hindu-Muslim issue in his attempt to become the Narendra Modi of his state, civil aviation minister and Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) president Ajit Singh said on Thursday.
Accusing the SP government of failing to maintain law and order in the state following communal violence in Muzaffarnagar district, Singh said, "Mulayam is not left with any issue for elections. That is the reason a lot of anti-social elements are taking advantage. There is a total collapse of law and order and anti-social elements are taking advantage."
Singh and his son Jayant Chaudhary were earlier on Monday stopped from entering Uttar Pradesh, while they were on their way to riot-hit Muzaffarnagar. The two were detained near Ghaziabad.
Singh had earlier said that he is ready to take responsibility for the people who have fled from the affected-areas fearing clashes.
"I will make committees in villages from where the villagers have fled and bring them back to their homes," he added.
