Despite being denied permission to visit Uttar Pradesh's Saharanpur, Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday reached the riot-hit area and interacted with locals.

However, the police did try to stop the Congress vice-president but the latter adamantly reached the clash-affected area to take stock of the situation.

Rahul, accompanied by senior Congress leader Gulam Nabi Azad and Raj Babbar, also discussed the deteriorating situation prevailing in the state with the locals there.

After meeting the locals, Rahul could be seen engaged in an altercation with the police force where he questioned them as to on what grounds he was not allowed to enter Saharanpur.

He said: “The government is spreading fear across the country. Dalits are being oppressed, not just in Saharanpur but everywhere in India. Rohit Vemula was being oppressed and every crores are being oppressed.”

“Prime Minister Narendra Modi is giving foothold to anti-national powers in Jammu and Kashmir.” Rahul said in Saharanpur.

He also claimed that during the tenure of the Congress, the grand old party brought peace in the Valley and the current the government has failed to do so.

“We worked for ten years and brought peace in Jammu and Kashmir, now see the present situation of the state. Whenever there is peace in Jammu and Kashmir, it is profitable for the India. But when violence took place, it’s profitable for Pakistan. It’s all done by Prime Minister Narendra Modi,” he further said.

Earlier in the day, the Jammu and Kashmir Police killed two terrorists, including Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) commander Sabzar Bhatt who succeeded Burhan Wani, were killed in an encounter in Saimu Tral sector of Jammu and Kashmir.

The Government of Jammu and Kashmir snapped the mobile internet (2G, 3G and 4G) services in Kashmir fearing law and order problems, especially after the killing of top HM commander Sabzar Bhatt in Tral encounter.

The Congress vice president was yesterday denied permission to visit the clash-affected district where a caste conflict had erupted in which many Dalits were allegedly targeted.

The confirmation of this development has been given by Additional Director General of Police Law and Order Aditya Mishra to ANI.

"We have requested all political parties not to visit the state until the situation is brought back to normal in Saharanpur." Mishra told ANI.

Clashes broke out earlier after Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati's visit to Saharanpur, where one person was killed and several others were injured.

The State Government also announced to give compensation of Rs. 15 lakh to relatives of the person, who was killed during this incident.

In the wake of clashes between two communities in Saharanpur, the Yogi Adityanath Government transferred 174 Sub-Divisional Magistrates.

On May 5, one person was killed and 16 people, including a head constable, were injured in clashes between the Dalits and the Rajputs in Shabbirpur and Simlana villages.

BJP slams Rahul Gandhi

With Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi visiting Saharanpur in Uttar Pradesh despite being denied permission, Union Minister for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSME) Kalraj Mishra on Saturday said that the former should cancel his visit so as to avoid any further communal clashes.

‘Uttar Pradesh’s Saharanpur has become a sensitive area now and social harmony is being attacked. At this moment, his visit will make things more worse. It will hamper on a social level. His visit may entice another such communal clash which will affect the country,’ Mishra told ANI.

Mishra asserted that just because BSP chief Mayawati visited the region that does not mean Rahul should also do so.

‘It will be like playing with public’s feelings,’ he added.

Mishra while speaking on the law and order of Uttar Pradesh said that the Yogi government has completed nearly two months and they are definitely trying hard to control the ongoing situation.

‘The Opposition party leaders are trying to deteriorate the situation. I will say these unfortunate incidents are being created intentionally as they want to spoil Yogi Adityanath’s name. But this will not continue now. Law and order will prevail in the state,’ he added. (ANI)
