NEW DELHI — Social media users reacted sharply to the latest comment of Uttar Pradesh Deputy Chief Minister Keshav Prasad Maurya that preparations were underway for the construction of a temple in Mathura.

The comment came through a tweet in Hindi which translates to “The construction of grand temples is on in Ayodhya and Kashi, and preparations are on for one in Mathura,” he tweeted.

The controversial statement has come at a time when campaigns for UP Assembly elections are picking up with experts warning of a spike in communal rhetoric. Maurya’s tweet evoked reactions from BSP supremo Mayawati and Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav.

The statements of the deputy CM, Mayawati said in a tweet, “reinforces the general perception of BJP’s defeat. People should beware of this (Akhiri hatkande) last tactic that is Hindu-Muslim politics.”

Akhilesh Yadav gave a similar reaction saying BJP is sensing defeat. “This (Maurya’s tweet) indicates that the BJP has sensed a sure defeat in the upcoming UP Assembly elections,” the SP boss told a news channel.

Common social media users especially Muslim also reacted to Maurya’s tweet with a hashtag #SaveMathuraMasjid.
