A delegation of leaders of five parties that visited Kairana on Thursday hit out at BJP for giving a “communal” angle to the migration of families even as the saffron party took a swipe at JD(U) and RJD, which were part of the group, for “vitiating” the atmosphere after “failing” to run Bihar.

However, JD(U) MP and spokesperson K C Tyagi, who along with D Raja of CPI and Mohammad Salim of CPI-M, D P Tripathi of NCP and RJD’s Manoj Jha went to the western UP town, said the area was hit by poor law and order, forcing many families to leave over the years.

“BJP has given it a communal colour for political reasons. It is condemnable. Thanks to media probe it was forced to
backtrack. Poor law and order is a problem there, as is the case in many parts of Uttar Pradesh,” he said. BJP national secretary Shrikant Sharma, however, insisted that the party had from day one called it a law and order problem and not linked the migration to any religion.

Taking a swipe at JD(U) and RJD, he said they should rather concentrate on Bihar which, he alleged, suffered from “crumbling” law and order situation. “We are not objecting to their visit. But the delegation of these parties has gone there to vitiate the atmosphere there. JD(U) and RJD could not run Bihar and are now visiting UP to vitiate the atmosphere there,” he said.

    BJP is a party of Buffoons with criminal minds.After much of brain storming sessions for launching their favorite polarization games before an election,the bounty hunters on the trail of imaginary culprits wanted to pin down on the Kairana exodus on the Muslims, to counter the Muzzarffarnagar tragedy.But before it could catch fire and destroy people NDTV exposed them.Thanks that's how media should work,always in pursuit of truth and nothing else.
