BJP has been repeatedly demanding CBI probe into the violence in Mathura, which left 29 people dead.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Tuesday rejected demands for CBI probe into the Mathura violence in which 29 people, including a Superintendent of Police and an SHO, were killed.

 

"BJP is left without any issue. Therefore it is creating hype over Kairana (migration) and Mathura (violence) unnecessarily. There will be no CBI inquiry into Mathura incident," he said here.

BJP has been repeatedly demanding CBI probe into the violence in Mathura earlier this month when police tried to evict activists of an organisation from large tracts of land illegally occupied by them. 29 people, including an SP and an SHO, were killed in the violence during which the activists of the organisation even indulged in firing.

BJP has also been raking up the issue of alleged migration from Kairana area to target the Samajwadi Party government.

The Chief Minister also attacked BJP over relaxation of FDI norms, saying it has walked "two miles" more than the Congress in this regard.

 

He said BJP was initially opposing FDI but now it has itself opened more gates for it.

Government had yesterday launched a second wave of FDI reforms allowing 100 per cent inflows in civil aviation and food processing sectors while easing norms in defence and pharmaceuticals.
