"The PM should give a reply on increasing acts of religious tolerance in the country. The PM's silence on the issue is alarming," SP spokesman Rajendra Chowdhury said.

"After Modi government was formed at the Centre, issues like conversion, 'ghar wapasi', Love Jihad, installation of statues of Mahatma Gandhi's killer Nathu Ram Godse took front seat while core issues like development were not addressed," he said.

"Such activities are maligning the image of the country abroad and was not good for it. There is not doubt that attempts are being made to disturb communal harmony," Chowdhury said.

He said that SP government would not let BJP fulfil its designs to disturb communal harmony in Uttar Pradesh.
