Based on a report submitted by panel chief Shakeel Ahmed to the state government, state BJP spokesman Vijay Bahadur Pathak said reference to "intelligence failure" in these incidents is an indictment of the chief minister.

"The government and the chief minister must explain why did the intelligence agencies fail when such a thing was taking place in the state," the BJP leader said while demanding that the Samajwadi Party (SP) government should set its house in order rather than pointing fingers at the saffron camp.

For everything bad happening in the state, Akhilesh Yadav has a penchant for attacking the BJP though on all occasions officials and other authorities have only pointed at failures of various wings of the government itself, he told IANS.

The spokesman also demanded that instead of pointing accusing fingers at the BJP and others, the government should make public the recommendations of the minority panel and act upon them.

He also referred to the statement made by SP chief and former UP chief minister Mulayam Singh Yadav in parliament that no conversions had taken place at Agra or any other place in the state.
