A day after BJP national president Amit Shah held state minister Shivpal Yadav responsible for the Mathura violence and sought his resignation, the SP on Sunday said Shah should either produce evidence in support of his allegations or tender a public apology.

Senior SP leader and former minister, Ambika Chaudhary, told reporters: “While Shah himself was externed from his state, BJP state president Keshav Parasav Maurya has a criminal record… BJP should make it clear whether it was with those police officers who lost their lives in the violence or with those who spread anarchy.”

“BJP has no moral right to speak on the law and order situation of UP because Haryana has recently faced height of anarchy,” he added.

On BJP’s demand for a CBI probe into the Mathura incident, Chaudhary said: “Those who want to get the inquiry dumped and delayed want a CBI probe.”

After Shah’s remark on Saturday, Shivpal himself had issued two statements, in which he had rubbished Shah’s allegations.
