Reports on Tuesday indicated that Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) is set to felicite Muzaffarnagar riots accused Sangeet Som and Suresh Rana in Narendra Modi's rally. Modi is set to hold five rallies in Rajasthan today.

Both the MLAs have been accused of inciting violence in Muzaffarnagar through their hate speeches at a panchayat organised by the party.

"BJP has made up its mind that both the party MLAs Sangeet Som and Suresh Rana will be welcomed in the party. I condemn this kind of incident. After the riots of muzaffarnagar, BJP had appealed that investigation should be made. We want to ask why the SIT have not investigated against Noor Sana, Maulana Nazir," said Laxmikant Bajpai.

He added, "BJP believes that the Charge sheet against the two MLAs is a waste, and should be thrown in the bin."  

However, BJP chief Rajnath Singh refuted claims and said, "Its news to me, I have no information about it, hearing it for the first time."
