According to Shivpal Yadav, Maurya was told not to engage in such religious matters after the Ramcharitmanas dispute
Shivpal Singh Yadav, a top Samajwadi Party politician, said on Tuesday that he has been told not to engage in such religious matters in the wake of the controversy over Swami Prasad Maurya's comments on the Ramcharitmanas.
"We've all said that we wish to steer clear of religious and social problems. It has been ordered that Swami Prasad Maurya refrain from engaging in such religious matters. The BJP constantly tries to bring up this subject, "He told this reporter.
"We uphold the teachings of Lord Ram. We are Lord Krishna's offspring. We live in a secular nation. Being secular, we. We don't want to compete on the BJP's field. We identify as Samajwadi "Added he.
Before the 2022 Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections, Maurya—a cabinet member in the state's previous BJP administration—had quit and joined the SP.
He ran for the Kushinagar district's Fazilnagar Assembly seat, but he was unsuccessful. Akhilesh Yadav, the leader of the SP, subsequently appointed him to the legislative council.
At the Hazratganj police station, a FIR was filed against Maurya on January 24 as a result of his divisive remarks on the Ramcharitmanas.
On January 29, a new FIR was filed at the PGI police station against him and the other individuals.
The Ramcharitmanas, according to Maurya, who was just appointed general secretary of the SP, "insult" a significant sector of society based on caste. He called for its "banning" on January 22.
