FAIZABAD: Taking on BJP, Uttar Pradesh Minister Azam Khan today alleged "mischievous" activities are being carried out daily at the behest of the saffron party to flare up communal atmosphere in all the districts of the state.

"Saffron party is conspiring to organise Muzaffarnagar and Gujarat-like riots in UP," the Samajwadi Party leader alleged.

"In every district, mischievous activities are being carried out daily to flare up the communal atmosphere," Khan said.

He was chief guest at 'Eid Milan' programme in the city.

The minister also launched a veiled attack on All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen and its chief Asaduddin Owaisi, alleging the party had an understanding with BJP in Maharashtra.

The minister appealed to the Muslims of the state to be aware of such forces.
