Meerut (Uttar Pradesh) : Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Sangeet Som, who kicked off his “Paidal Nirbhay Yatra” across Uttar Pradesh today to assure safety to the Hindu families from Kairana village of Shamli district, urged his supporters not to violate the law and maintain peace.

Som, who was surrounded by his supporters outside his residence here, said that he would abide by the law.

“The moment administration tells us that we are in violation of Section-142, we will stop the rally,” he told the media here.

Meanwhile, Uttar Pradesh BJP chief Keshav Prasad Maurya said this rally is ‘uncalled for’, adding that the party has not yet given a green signal in this regard.

“The BJP has not said anything to push this forward. Sangeet ji has been insisted that there’s no need for this right now. We will think about it and wait for the party’s instructions,” he said. (ANI)
