Asserting that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has no agenda for 2017 Uttar Pradesh elections, the Janata Dal (United) on Thursday said that the saffron outfit has no other choice but to disturb the communal environment.
JD(U) leader KC Tyagi told reporters, “BJP has no agenda for 2017 Uttar Pradesh elections. People of the nation are not very happy with BJP’s two year of work. So they have no other way but to disturb the communal environment.”
BJP legislator and Muzaffarnagar riots accused Hukum Singh, who had earlier reportedly said that the Hindus were being forced to leave their homes in the Muslim-majority town in Kairana, has now backtracked from his claims.

He has said that the “migration” of Hindus from Kairana was “not communal” in nature, adding that people are leaving the region due to law and order problems and threats by goons.
According to reports, the police have ordered a probe into the alleged migration after Singh presented a list of 346 families from the Muslim-majority town while claiming that they had to leave their homes after attacks and extortion attempts.
