"Ram Navami celebrations and processions were conducted safely in all the states ruled by the BJP, but due to the TMC government of West Bengal, Ram Navami processions were attacked there and efforts were made to hurt 'Sanatan' faith," news agency ANI quoted Yogi Adityanath as saying.

Yogi Adityanath said the law and order situation in BJP-ruled states has greatly improved.

"We should not forget that the first condition of good governance is the rule of law and there is no hesitation in saying that under the leadership and guidance of Modi ji, the BJP has improved security within the country and the state governments of the BJP have also improved security within the states," he added.

His remarks came after Mamata Banerjee accused the BJP of orchestrating the clashes, which broke out during a Ram Navami procession in West Bengal's Murshidabad district on Wednesday. Four people were injured in the clash.

While addressing a poll-bound rally, Mamata Banerjee had claimed that the violence was pre-planned. "Everything was pre-planned. The DIG of Murshidabad was removed a day ahead of Ram Navami so that you (the BJP) can carry out violence," she said.

However, the BJP blamed Mamata Banerjee for the clash during Wednesday's procession. Suvendu Adhikari has demanded a National Investigation Agency probe into the incident, claiming Banerjee's alleged provocative speech triggered violence.
