Allahabad: Taking its battle to Hindi heartland, Aam Aadmi Party today alleged that ruling Samajwadi Party in Uttar Pradesh was “guilty of fomenting communal tensions in collusion with the BJP.”

“Both (SP and BJP) believe that they will benefit in a communally-charged atmosphere. A glaring example was the Muzaffarnagar riots,” party's national spokesman Sanjay Singh told reporters here.

He said the party will contest all the 80 Lok Sabha seats in the state in the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.  “Our national executive has decided that AAP will be fielding its candidates in as many as 20 states across the country in the Lok Sabha elections.

“In UP, which sends the maximum number of MPs, we intend to contest all the 80 seats,” Singh told reporters.  Singh also charged the SP government in the state with “repressing democratic movements against corruption” and “fomenting communal tensions in collusion with the BJP”.

In reply to a query, the AAP leader said the ruling SP was “guilty of fomenting communal tensions in collusion with the BJP.”
