Union minister of state for home Kiren Rijiju on Sunday said that the ministry of home affairs (MHA) has sought a report from Uttar Pradesh government on the violence which erupted in Moradabad district.



“I would not like to comment on state’s (UP) law and order situation now, because I have to seek the report first and see that what is the reason behind the incident,” Rijiju said on the sidelines of a seminar held here.

On media reports of a senior police official in Uttar Pradesh accusing BJP leaders for inciting tensions, he said, “MHA has sought report from the state government and then we can give reaction on it.”

Tensions erupted on Friday in Kanth area of Moradabad district, after the police tried to stop some people from holding a ‘mahapanchayat’, organized by the state BJP, over removal of a loudspeaker from a temple.

On Saturday, Union home minister Rajnath Singh said in Lucknow that the government has sought a report from the state government. “A report has been sought from the UP government on the entire incident. I will be in a position to say anything only after the report is received,” Singh said during a programme in the city.
