With UP going to be epicentre of post-Liberhan report developments, Chief Minister Mayawati on Wednesday warned that anybody-high and mighty- trying to create law and order problem would be dealt with sternly.
Addressing journalists in Lucknow on Wednesday, Mayawati accused the Congress and BJP of once again hobnobbing on the issue for political interest. She, however, said any attempt to spread communal venom in the state would be thwarted effectively. She also bracketed the Samajwadi Party with Congress and BJP for making attempts to cash in on the Ayodhya issue.
The chief minister, while rubbishing Action Taken Report (ATR) on Liberhan commission, said "It is an eyewash".
Mayawati, however, refused to comment on indictment of former Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee in the report.
She has also directed the Principal Secretary (Home) Kunwar Fatehbahadur and DGP Karamvir Singh to visit all sensitive districts to review the law and order situation there.
Referring to proposed visit of former CM Kalyan Singh to Ayodhya, the chief minister said adequate measures would be taken. Kalyan Singh had announced in Delhi on Tuesday that he would soon visit Ayodhya to offer prayer at makeshift Ram temple. She said the people had now realised that Congress and BJP were only interested in vote bank politics on the issue.
Pointing out that the Liberhan commission report was very important for UP, Mayawati said "leak" was aimed at causing emotions among the people.
"The Congress and BJP are experts in spreading religious hatred for political motive", Mayawati said adding people should be vigilant of machination of these parties. It was not possible to demolish the "disputed structure" in Ayodhya on December 6, 1992 without Congress-BJP alliance.
The chief minister reiterated that her government would abide by the court decision in Ayodhya case. Mayawati also made dig at the commission for sparing the Congress and the then central government led by PV Narasimha Rao.
