Launching yet another offensive against the Samajwadi Party government in Uttar Pradesh, BSP chief Mayawati Saturday said Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav was not “serious” and the violence in Mathura and that is why he is touring Bundelkhand instead of visiting the clash-hit district.
“The Chief Minister is still not sensitive and serious about the Mathura incident, or he would have gone to Mathura today and not Bundelkhand. The clash in the temple town is just another example of the lawlessness and jungle raj prevailing in the state under SP rule,” the former UP chief minister said.

She also demanded a Supreme Court-monitored CBI inquiry into the clash between the members of a sect and the police, which left 24 persons, including two police officials, dead.
Addressing a press conference at BSP state headquarters here she both the Centre and Governor Ram Naik were doing “only the formalities” and it indicates that there is “something hidden” behind the incident.
Mayawati said the way Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be remembered for 2002 Gujarat riots, Samajwadi Party supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav will be known for riots in Gonda’s Karnailganj, and Akhilesh will be remembered for the incidents in Muzaffarnagar, Dadri and Mathura.
