Kasganj Violence: Minister says opposition must not politicise Kasganj clash

Union Minister of State for Food Processing Industries Sadhvi Niranjan Jyoti on Tuesday asked the opposition not to politicise the recent violence in Uttar Pradesh’s Kasganj.

The Union Minister told ANI, “The incident means that anti-national elements can’t tolerate Tiranaga Yatra. UP government is taking strict action. Such incidents will not be tolerated. It should also not be politicised.”

Earlier, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Vinay Katiyar said miscreants who support Pakistan, can go to any extent to defy the Indian tricolour and are the ones behind the Kasganj violence.

On Monday, a Muslim shopkeeper’s store was burnt in Kasganj.

“I have been living and working here for the past 20 years. Even though I am the only Muslim among a Hindu majority, we never had any problems,” the shopkeeper said.

The police are investigating the matter.

One person, identified as Chandan Gupta, died and two others were injured in the Kasganj violence that broke out on Saturday after a youth died during a clash on Friday.

The clash broke out after an unauthorized bike rally was taken out by RSS-affiliated students’ group Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad and the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) in the city to commemorate the Republic Day, and allegedly stones were pelted at them during the roadshow.
