Firozabad: Samajwadi Party leader Ramgopal Yadav on Thursday made a controversial statement alleging the February 14 terror attack on a CRPF convoy in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama was a "conspiracy" hatched to fetch votes.

He said that the truth behind the attack will be investigated once the dispensation changes at the Centre and big names will surface.

"The paramilitary forces are unhappy with the government. The jawans were killed for votes. There was no checking (on the highway) between Jammu and Srinagar. They were sent in ordinary buses. All this was part of a conspiracy. I won't like to say it right now, but when the government changes this will be investigated and big names will surface," said Yadav said while addressing a gathering here on the occasion of Holi.

Forty CRPF personnel were killed in the terror attack when their convoy was targeted on the Srinagar-Jammu National Highway in Pulwama district. Later, Pakistan based Jaish-e-Mohammed staked claim for the attack.
