Blame game: AAP holds BJP, RSS responsible for Bhadrak violence

Bhubaneswar: The Odisha unit of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has today blamed the BJP and RSS, alleging them of inciting communal violence in Bhadrak since the last three days. Some Congress leaders are also triggering violence by posting irrational comments on social media, alleged AAP and demanded that the State Government should take action against them.

Addressing mediapersons, AAP Convenor Nishikant Mohapatra said, “We have brought very pin-pointed allegation as the posts were seen on the social media account of a State BJP activist. We have checked 15 to 20 social media accounts and are demanding action against the particular person responsible for the incident.”

Though the Congress has not refuted the charge, BJP spokersperson Sajjan Sharma said, “The allegation of AAP is partial. They are also involved in the issue but have washed their hands off it. One among the two persons who had posted on social media in the beginning has been held, the other persons should be arrested soon and that will solve the argument on the incident.”
