SDPI leadership has termed the detention of Chandrashekhar Azad a conspiracy by the ruling BJP in Uttar Pradesh aimed at curbing the dissent and up rise of Dalit movements in the state.
SDPI leadership alleged that the government of UP thwarting the judicial order, slapped NSA against Chandrashekhar Azad undermining the spirit of the order of the High Court, denying him the civil liberty and legal protection.

The charges made against Chandrashekhar Azad are fabricated and politically motivated.
