Submitting a memorandum to Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik on the Kairana ‘migration’ issue, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Friday sought a CBI inquiry into the matter.

On Wednesday, a nine-member BJP delegation which went to review the situation in controversial Kairana village, targeted the Uttar Pradesh government over the deteriorating law and order condition and said that apart the 346 families who have already migrated from the village, many more are willing to do the same.

However, the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) has alleged that the BJP and Samajwadi Party (SP) are hand-in-glove and stated that Sardhana MLA Sangeet Som’s “Paidal Nirbhay Yatra” is a desperate attempt on part of the ruling dispensation at the Centre to spoil the communal harmony of Uttar Pradesh.

Earlier today, Som embarked on a week-long “Paidal Nirbhay Yatra” across Uttar Pradesh, but was stopped from entering Kairana. He suspended his yatra and gave a 15-day ultimatum to the SP government, demanding that those who migrated from Kairana must be brought back or else “nobody can stop BJP worker from entering the village”.

“To the people who are migrating from Kirana, I just want to give them a message that they are safe in Uttar Pradesh. And we will not let Uttar Pradesh turn into Kashmir,” Som said.

“I want to tell them that they should stay here and not migrate. The people, who have already migrated, should realize that the atmosphere in the state is becoming better,” he added.

Som further assured that he would not do anything against the law.
