The Congress Saturday said the Muzaffarnagar riots were "a fixed match" between the Samajwadi Party (SP) and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Party spokesman Zeeshan Haider also slammed BJP legislator from Sardhana, Sangeet Som, for his call to hold a mahapanchayat again. "Muzaffarnagar is yet to come back to normalcy and Som is trying to stoke passions again," he said.
Haider said SP and BJP were hand in glove and it was for this reason that non-serious charges were levelled against Som to facilitate his easy release from jail. "Both parties are trying to incite people in the troubled region and fishing for votes," Haider pointed out.
