Bareilly under curfew for 12th day

  • tags: no_tag

    • On Thursday, Chief Minister Mayawati saw to it that Maulana Tauqir Raza Khan, an accused in the riot, was released.

      It served two purposes: The Maulana's angry supporters did not resort to more violence and the Muslim vote was pacified.

    • Soon, Congress and the Samajwadi Party leaders were also trying to reach Bareilly because staying away could be a political setback in a state where Muslim politics is a big decider.
