Mulayam blames Mayawati for deadly farmer-police clashes

Lucknow: Squarely blaming Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati for the farmer-police clashes in Greater Noida, Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Mulayam Singh Yadav said here yesterday his party would continue to fight for farmers' rights.

"None other than the chief minister is responsible for the clashes there ... It's a part of the conspiracy by the chief minister, who wants to remain in power even as farmers and police continue to clash," Yadav said. "The government should have invited the farmers for talks."

Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh also blamed the Mayawati government.

The death toll in the protests on Saturday has risen to four. Farmers want increased financial compensation for the land they say has been forcibly taken away from them to build the Yamuna Expressway.

The proposed 165km expressway, when completed, is expected to cut the travelling time between New Delhi and Agra by an hour.
