Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath termed the Bulandshahr violence a "political conspiracy" hatched by those who have lost political ground.

"Those who wanted to create anarchy...the intentions of those who instigated riots after cow slaughter have been foiled," Adityanath told reporters after the Assembly was adjourned for the day amid opposition ruckus.

The day's proceedings in both the Houses of the state legislature were marred by continued uproar and sloganeering by the opposition Samajwadi Party and the Congress over various issues, including the plight of farmers and the law and order in the state, including the recent Bulandshahr violence.

"Bulandshahr incident was a conspiracy and it has been was a political conspiracy," he said.

"...those who are cowards and not in a position to face a direct fight...they are embracing each other seeing that their political ground is receding...the state government will not allow any such conspiracy and will deal with it sternly," the chief minister said.

He said the state government will maintain rule of law at all cost.

Adityanath had earlier termed the Bulandshahr violence an accident.

The violence, which occurred over an incident of alleged cow slaughter, claimed two lives including that of a police inspector.
