More than four months after a man was lynched in Dadri allegedly on suspicion that he was consuming and storing beef, Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav claimed that at least three men involved in killing belong to BJP and he can reveal the names if Prime Minister calls him.
“BJP had promised to remove discrimination. What discrimination have they removed? A father was killed while his son was posted on border. I had earlier spoken of three names who were involved in the killing. Those are associated with BJP. If PM calls, I will give all names,” Mulayam said at a youth convention of the party at the SP headquarters here.
The SP chief, however, didn’t take the names of the Bisara village in Dadri area of Gautam Budh Nagar or the victim 50-year-old Mohammad Akhlaq who was killed by a mob on September 28. Mulayam had then claimed that the lynching was a conspiracy “hatched by three persons from a specific organisation” who had played a similar role in the 2013 Muzaffarnagar riots. He had then refused to identify the trio or the organisation, saying his party would first conduct an inquiry.
