"It will be better for Rahul Gandhi choose to visit the place once the situation is cooled off and balanced", Prakash told ANI.

He said, "Be it the Greater- Noida Highway rape and murder case, or the Rampur incident, Saharanpur, Muzzafarpur or other numerous incidents, it proves how unsafe the place has become for women and minorities". His comments came in the wake of a gangrape-murder in Greater Noida, similar to the one witnessed on a highway in Bulandshahr a year ago, and the caste clashes in Saharanpur. In between, on May 9, about 12 police vehicles were set ablaze and 12 policemen injured.

The UP government further blamed Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Mayawati's visit to Shabbirpur this week for stoking the violence. Inter-caste violence between Thakurs and Dalits have killed two persons and injured severals till now.
