The senior party leaders from UP who met AICC general secretary Madhusudan Mistry in Delhi Saturday to discuss the strategy for the polls also demanded that a chief ministerial candidate should be named.
The clashes broke out during a demonstration by the sadhus and devotees against the September 22 police baton-charge on a procession where they were heading to immerse Lord Ganesha’s idol in the Ganga.
"The Dadri incident was a pre-planned conspiracy...you will come to know the names. According to the information I have gathered, three persons related to a specific party are behind the incident," said Yadav.
Also, the question of validity of the present process under the existing act was raised pointing out that the amendment bill with new selection criteria is already pending with the Governor of Uttar Pradesh for approval.
