Muslims too have fled Kairana: Minister

Muslims too have fled Kairana: Minister

Seeking to blunt the Opposition attack, Union Minister Sanjeev Balyan on Monday said the Kairana incident should be seen as a “law and order” issue as even Muslims had migrated to safer places.

Balyan, who is a Jat leader from western Uttar Pradesh, also said the BJP has distanced itself from the aggressive campaign launched by MLA Sangeet Som and had given a 15-day ultimatum to the state government to ensure the return of all Hindu families who have fled from Kairana. “Muslim families have also fled from Kairana, it is not only Hindus,” he said when asked to comment on the Kairana migrations.
