Agra: Four days after Prime Minister Narendra Modis visit to Mathura, Uttar Pradesh deputy chief minister Keshav Prasad Maurya on Sunday alleged the SP does not want to build the Shri Krishna temple and challenged the party chief Akhilesh Yadav to clarify his stand. "The SP, which is shedding the blood of Hindus for the sake of minority votes, wants the votes of the descendants of Lord Krishna, but doesnt want a temple on the birthplace of Shri Krishna, Maurya wrote on the social site X. If SP bahadur Shri Akhilesh Yadav is not under the pressure of Shri Azam Khan and his community on this matter, then please clarify your stand," he further said. Even in 2021, Maurya had asked Yadav whether he wanted to build the Shri Krishna temple in Mathura or not.

He was there to participate in the Meerabai Janmotsav organised to celebrate the 525th birth anniversary of Mirabai, a devotee of Lord Krishna.
