"I cannot say about political conspiracies till I get a complete report about the violence (in Muzaffarnagar). But political parties could indulge in," he said.

The Home Minister's comment came when asked whether there was any political conspiracy behind the Muzaffarnagar riots. Shinde said that the Centre has already warned 11 states about possible communal violence ahead of 2014 general election.

"As we approach towards the election, we may witness more such communal violence. We have alerted 11 states," he said.

The Home Minister, however, refused to blame the Akhilesh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party government for the riots in western Uttar Pradesh, saying situation there has improved considerably now.

"80 companies (8,000 personnel) of paramilitary forces were deployed (in UP). Army was also deployed. Curfew has been relaxed now. Situation is improving," he said.
