Five Opposition parties have decided to depute a joint delegation that will visit Kairana and Kandhla towns in Shamli district of western UP Thursday to “ascertain facts”.

The move comes in the wake of allegations that people were migrating out of the area in large numbers due to “harassment” by people of rival sections.

JD (U) secretary-general K C Tyagi announced that the delegation will comprise himself, Mohd Salim of CPM, D Raja of CPI, D P Tripathi of NCP and Manoj Jha of RJD.

Tyagi said the delegation would meet all sections of people in the two towns. The BJP, according to him, had created anxiety and tension in Uttar Pradesh by claiming that there had been an exodus of Hindus from Kairana. “They (BJP) have tested the waters in Godhra and Muzaffarnagar riots and seen the results. They are in search of a similar opportunity before assembly elections in UP,” he said.

He criticised the statement of BJP president Amit Shah on the alleged mass migration of Hindus and alleged that it has created anxiety and tension in western UP.

Earlier in the day, JD(U) leader Sharad Yadav cautioned against any attempt to foment communal tension ahead of the assembly polls.

“People from Kairana did come to me. They told me that what all they (BJP) are saying is a lie. It is nice that they (BJP) have made a U-turn from what they have earlier said. Soon there will be elections in UP, there should not be any tension on communal divide,” he said.

    After preparing the report in advance by agents outsourced in JNU, the team is going to lend signatures. It would say that the people of Kairana are 'secular', the communal, retrograde, revisionists, reactionaries found themselves suffocating in the atmosphere of secular whiff of fresh soothing breeze, hence they left to suffer their 'karma' to a place of ghettos of 'communalism'. Responsible media should not give any further coverage or leverage to such retrogrades to preserve the ideals of secularism introduced in India by Ghazni, Ghori, Babur, Aurangzeb and Nadir Shah as well as modern day paragons who are proud supporters of Jihadis and Maoists.

      Please be quick about it. We want to know the truth. Nothing coming from BJP's cow shed can be trusted any more. They colour everything in their favour and they have an allergy to truth. Hence always cling to half truths or pure lies and spread them as truth among the people.

        The entire "Intolerance" and Afzal premi gang is visiting Kairana. We know they are going there with a pre-conceived statement --- "All is well in Kairana, people who have vacated their houses have migrated to other places for better business and employment prospects.Locals have informed us that there is absolute harmony among the people living thereby BJP is trying to give a communal color to polarize the votes in forthcoming U.p.elections"

          There is no need to publish their report. Since they are known as the secular combine, no guesswork is required.

            They dont have a single MP/MLA from that place and these clowns want some media light and help ISI/LeT/SP/Congress in the process. How many MPs all these jokers together have all over India put together... still in single digit! And they get headline by ISI/vatican funded media!
