New Delhi :

The Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party (SBSP) leader and backward classes welfare minister in Yogi Adityanath’s cabinet, OP Rajbhar, on Tuesday alleged that the Bulandshahr violence was a “pre-planned conspiracy” of the RSS – the ideological patriarch of the ruling BJP – in collaboration with the hard-line Hindu groups VHP and Bajrang Dal to disturb peace. “This (Bulandshahr violence) is a pre-planned conspiracy by VHP, Bajrang Dal and RSS, now police is even naming some BJP members. Why did the protest happen on the same day of Muslim Ijtema event? It was an attempt to disturb the peace,” ANI quoted SBSP leader Rajbhar as saying.

Despite being the alliance partner of the ruling BJP in Uttar Pradesh, Rajbhar is known for openly speaking against the Yogi Adityanath government. Recently, during the VHP ‘Dharma Sabha’ in Ayodhya, Rajbhar had sided with former UP CM Akhilesh Yadav and described the gathering of the mob in the holy town a "failure of the government".

Meanwhile, the family members of the murdered Bulandshahr cop alleged a conspiracy by the UP police and slammed the Uttar Pradesh chief minister for his past statements on cow protection.
