The BJP has blamed the minority appeasement policies of the Centre for the communal violence in Aligarh.

"The violence in Aligarh is yet another result of the appeasement policies of the Congress-led Centre and the UP government. Both of them have been encouraging intolerance in some particular communities," BJP spokesman Prakash Javadekar said.

Party vice-president Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi accused the Samajwadi Party government in the state of "fomenting" communal trouble and demanded President's rule in Uttar Pradesh.

"The state is sitting on a powder keg. There have been communal riots many times during the SP rule in Uttar Pradesh and it's high time the Centre dismissed the Mulayam Singh Yadav government and ordered the President's rule in the state ahead of its Assembly elections," Naqvi said.
