BJP accuses Congress

There is a lot of rhetoric from both BJP and Congress on this matter. BJP's national spokesperson and MP Rajyavardhan Rathod targeted the state government over this issue and alleged that it is doing politics of appeasement for a particular community. He said, 'Politics of appeasement is happening... the difference is very clear, they only have to send a message to their vote bank.'

Congress retaliated

Khachariyawas said, 'He has broken the temple in Rajgarh and he also lied by breaking the temple. Everyone has documentary evidence that their own board in the municipality made a proposal to this effect. Khachariyawas alleged that BJP is conspiring to cause riots in the entire state and wants to win the lost battle in Rajasthan by misusing social media.
