BSP Govt is anti-Muslims: SP
Samajwadi Party on Friday dubbed the BSP government in Uttar Pradesh as anti-Muslims and said that the suspension of state Chief Information Commissioner Justice (retd) MA Khan was another example in this regard.
Speaking to newspersons in Lucknow, leader of opposition in the Vidhan Parishad Ahmed Hasan said Khan's suspension was an outcome of the anti-Muslim bais of the BSP government, which had been planning to oust him soon after coming to power.
Alleging that cases of corruption and anomalies in the appointment of employees have been framed against Khan in order to tarnish his image, Hasan said by doing so the government has tried to harm the image and dignity of the constitutional institution such as the state information commission.
The SP leader said earlier the government had initiated such arbitrary steps against Muslim officials and leaders and the first victim was senior IAS officer Anis Ansari who was suspended on flimsy grounds.
He alleged that Muslim officials were being given insignificant postings.
"It is merely for political reasons that the BSP government is trying to woo the Muslims by branding the Indo-US nuclear deal as anti-Muslims," Hasan said.
Governor TV Rajeswar suspended khan, a retired justice of Allahabad High Court, who was made the Chief information commissioner of the state during the Mulayam Singh Yadav regime, on Wednesday.
