Bukhari puts Akhilesh government on notice
Lucknow: Expressing disillusionment with the Akhilesh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party government in Uttar Pradesh, Shahi Imam Syed Ahmed Bukhari on Saturday said the it had failed miserably to address the problems of the minority community.
Putting Akhilesh government on three-month notice, he said at a press conference ''the minority community in UP is highly disappointed with the government and we give it three months after which we will decide the future course against it.''
The press conference witnessed some unpleasant scenes when a scribe from Urdu daily was roughed up by the personal staff of Shahi Imam.
Launching a frontal attack at UP government, he said the Samajwadi Party had promised a lot for the welfare of the Muslims but no promise was fulfilled leaving them high and dry. '' Though the SP government failed to fulfil the promises in four years but still we give them three months to mend it ways or else the backlash of the minority will see them out of power.''
Taking a pot shot at senior SP minister Mohd Azam Khan, he said the muslims sitting in the government were duty-bound to remind Akhilesh Yadav of his promises made at the time of last assembly elections.
When asked about the ongoing JNU row, Maulana Bukhari said it was a conflict between two ideologies.
