LUCKNOW (UP): Taking up the exodus issue a day before the campaign end of the first phase of Assembly polls in Uttar Pradesh, firebrand BJP MP from Gorakhpur, Yogi Adityanath, Wednesday claimed that only BJP can prevent western UP from turning into another Kashmir.
“The 14 year regime of the SP and BSP has only done appeasement of the minorities in the region and this Akhilesh Yadav government has gone to the extent of creating a record of sort by even trying to withdraw cases against the terrorist,” he alleged.
Yogi told reporters here today before leaving for his campaign trail that only BJP government in UP can save the state from turning into another Kashmir where the Kashmiri Pandits were now an outsider.
Giving details about the exodus of Hindus from west UP, the BJP MP said, there are at least over two dozen villages from where the exodus is most.
“The criminals have been institutionalised by this SP government who are running a parallel government, he said.
