Lucknow: A committee of five seers on Thursday submitted to Uttar Pradesh PWD minister Shivpal Singh Yadav its findings on whether there has been a “Hindu exodus” from Kairana in Shamli district.
The committee, which included the president of the Bharatiya Sant Samiti, Pramod Krishnan and Hindu Mahasabha president, Chakrapani, said it interacted with all sections of society and inferred that a dangerous plot was being hatched to destroy communal harmony in western Uttar Pradesh.
Refusing to elaborate further, the seers said the report is confidential and hoped that the state government would act on it and bring the troublemakers to book.
An investigation team sent by the SP’s government in Uttar Pradesh to Kairana has found that 160 Muslim families also left the region in the past 10 years, reported The Indian Express.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which alleged that Hindu families were being harassed into leaving their homes in Kairana, said the chief minister should pay heed to the report as it had also inferred that there was large scale migration.
State BJP spokesman Vijay Bahadur Pathak said that once the report is with the government, his party expected judicious action on it by Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav.
