New Delhi: An eight-member BJP delegation on Friday submitted a memorandum to Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik on the Kairana Hindu 'migration' issue and demanded a CBI probe into the matter.
According to ANI, the BJP delegation, which went to review the situation in controversial Kairana village, targeted the Uttar Pradesh government over the deteriorating law and order condition and said that apart the 346 families who have already migrated from the village, many more are willing to do the same.
However, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) has alleged that the BJP and Samajwadi Party (SP) are hand-in-glove and stated that Sardhana MLA Sangeet Som's "Nirbhay Yatra" is a desperate attempt on the part of the ruling dispensation at the Centre to spoil the communal harmony of Uttar Pradesh.
Earlier today, Som announced to embark on a week-long "Nirbhay Yatra" across Uttar Pradesh.
"To the people who are migrating from Kirana, I just want to give them a message that they are safe in Uttar Pradesh. And we will not let Uttar Pradesh turn into Kashmir," Som told reporters.
"I want to tell them that they should stay here and not migrate. The people, who have already migrated, should realise that the atmosphere in the state is becoming better," he added.
However, he later suspended the march and said that he is a loyal BJP worker and no one from the party would break the law.
He also confirmed that UP BJP chief Keshav Prasad Maurya had called him and asked him not to take the law into his hands.
