New Delhi [India], Mar 22 (ANI): The AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Thursday castigated the Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh for initiating the withdrawal of 131 cases relating to the Muzaffarnagar riots of 2013.
"They (BJP) are making a mockery of the Constitution and the IPC. Government should take action against those because of whom around 50,000 people became homeless," Owaisi told ANI.
The communal riots in Muzaffarnagar that took place in 2013 and spilled out to neighbouring Shamli, claimed at least 62 lives and left more than 50,000 people homeless.
It is notable that prominent BJP leaders were also booked in connection with the case. (ANI)
